Lake Chelan Airport Improvement Project

In 2010, Plateau completed a cultural resource survey of 40 acres at the Lake Chelan Airport to assist The City of Chelan and the Port of Chelan County with proposed projects to upgrade the airport to meet current and anticipated needs and improve safety. The projects included work to maintain pavement, shift and lengthen the runway and parallel taxiway, increase clearance to meet required dimensions, relocate one county road, acquire property for runway protection zones, install NAVAID projects, improve security, and revise the airport layout. This project was partly funded by Federal Aviation Administration grant monies (federal capital) was required to meet the requirements of the Section 106 of the NHPA and consider the potential impacts to historic properties prior to project execution.
