- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport is looking toward the future. Channel-2 News reports that the airport held an open house Thursday to provide the public with the opportunity to become more informed about five proposals for development of Anchorage's main airport. Airport Manager John Parrott says the five proposals range from doing nothing to adding a new runway. He says if that option was selected, it would require fill be put in the Anchorage Coastal Wildlife Refuge. Opponents say it also would destroy Point Woronzof Park and cut into the popular coastal trail. The airport expects to have a master plan finalized by the end of the year.
