Black Hills Airport-Clyde Ice Field (SPF) is in the third phase of the Airport Master Plan funded by Airport Improvement Program (AIP) airport planning grants issued by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to evaluate the facilities and role the airport has and will need to have into the future. KLJ in Rapid City, is the firm conducting this Master Plan study.
The project Began September 2014 and is expected to be completed towards the end of 2020. Previous phases of the Airport Master Plan include the initial Master Plan (2014-2017) and a focused study that included a cultural analysis, a runway protection zone (RPZ) analysis, and evaluation of the wetlands around the airport (2018-2019).
The third phase, currently being conducted, will evaluate a potential Runway 8/26 crosswind in comparison to a previously evaluated Runway 5/23 crosswind. There will also be a review of alternative layouts for the terminal/hangar area and update the plan documents and Airport Layout Plan based on the preferred crosswind runway (8/26 or 5/23).
As meetings occur, a copy of the meeting materials will be added to this website below and as documents are drafted, the documents will be included in the Master Plan documents link.
