JFK International Airport North Cargo Redevelopment
AKRF was part of a consultant team retained by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to prepare an Environmental Assessment for two new cargo processing facilities (to be constructed in two phases) and improvements to taxiways CA and CB within the north cargo area of John F. Kennedy International Airport in Queens, New York. We were responsible for the assessment of hazardous materials, wetlands, and cultural resources pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act and Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. In January 2019, the Federal Aviation Administration issued a Finding of No Significant Impact/Record of Decision for the project. This redevelopment project was identified in the 2013 JFK Air Cargo Study and incorporated into the 2017 Vision Plan for JFK.
