This paper is intended to present to interested groups—both general public and government officials—a proposal to upgrade the terminal building, parking facilities and traffic circulation pattern at T. F. Green State Airport. It was initially conceived to study the possible renovation and expansion of the terminal building alone. However, as the study developed, we felt the need of relating the terminal building to its surrounding elements; such as runway system, traffic circulation pattern, parking facilities, the surrounding community, and the environment. We studied, within the time limit we had, those elements and decided to concentrate on certain elements which we felt were of more importance. WE eliminated the less important considerations. WE alter decided not to study the runway system since it is considered of ne of the netter ones in the country. This study now covers the terminal building, traffic circulation, and parking facilities at T. F. Green State Airport.
