The Broward County Aviation Department (BCAD) has started to update the Master Plan for Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL). This will ensure FLL can meet the future aviation needs of the County. Keeping an up-to-date master plan is a federal requirement. More importantly, it provides a cohesive and cost-effective plan for building new facilities, roads, garages, and utilities at the Airport.
When completed, the master plan update will:
- Identify FLL’s capital improvements to meet the operational needs through 2035.
- Satisfy the needs of the market and the community.
- Balance environmental, social, and economic impacts.
- Create documents required by the Federal Aviation Administration. This will allow federal funding through the Airport Improvement Program and collecting the Passenger Facility Charges.
Previous Master Plan
BCAD completed the last FLL Master Plan in 2010. It focused on the long-term landside and terminal needs. Based on the plan,
A Capital Improvement Program began that included:
- Modernizing the four terminals.
- Expanding the South Runway.
- Improving other facilities, roads, and utilities.
BCAD is expected to complete this program by late 2021.
