George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) International Terminal Complex (ITC) Construction Staging Area Floodplain Notice

The City of Houston, Houston Airport System (HAS) proposes construction of the IAH International Terminal Complex (ITC) Program.  Development of the ITC Program includes a construction staging area at the corner of Standifer Street and Lee Road that would encroach upon a regulated (100-year) floodplain.  The construction staging area will cover about 43 acres and encroach on 21 acres of 100-year floodplain.  Maps showing the location of the proposed staging are and the floodplain encroachment can be found at

The ITC Program is planned to accommodate forecast growth in international passenger traffic while maintaining and enhancing passenger levels of service.  The proposed construction staging area would accommodate construction vehicles, construction materials storage, parking for construction worker vehicles, and temporary construction trailers for contractor field offices.  The location of the staging area would minimize construction traffic on Airport access roads.

The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable federal environmental laws for this project are being, or have been, carried out in accordance with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Order 1050.1F and Executive Order 11988, Floodplain Management.  The project’s effect on the floodplain is anticipated to be negligible and would not result in an adverse impact on the floodplain’s natural and beneficial floodplain values.

If requested, a Public Meeting to review the project and provide comments will be granted in conjunction with FAA policy and floodplain review.  If you would like to request a meeting, please contact James Parise at the HAS Asset Planning Section of the Infrastructure Division by phone at (281) 233-1756 or by email at  You may also provide written comments through Tuesday, October 8, 2019. Written comments may be submitted by mail to James Parise, Houston Airport System, Administration Building, 111 Standifer Street, Humble, TX 77338
