The Port of Seattle continues its work to complete the environmental review of the Sustainable Airport Master Plan (SAMP) Near-Term Projects (NTP). The release of the first environmental review analysis – the draft National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Environmental Assessment (EA) – is taking additional time due to the need for additional analysis.

The Port, in partnership with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), will provide additional updates prior to the release of the draft NEPA EA for agency and public comment.

Once the NEPA environmental review is final, the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) environmental review will follow. Commission authorization is required to initiate work on individual projects.
