The project logo Cordova Merle K. “Mudhole” Smith Airport Master Plan Update

The Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities is updating the Airport Master Plan for Merle K. “Mudhole” Smith Airport. The update will explore and document a plan for near, middle, and long-term development at the airport. The Federal Aviation Administration requires an updated master plan to provide funding for improvements.

Master plan focus areas are:

  • Airport use forecast
  • Airport layout plan
  • Critical aircraft ​types
  • Airside facilities
  • Landside facilities​
What existing airport conditions would you like the team to know about?
What is important to you about the future of the airport? Please be as specific as possible.
