Denver Update

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is providing this update for the Denver Metroplex project. New strategies and technologies in air traffic management are contributing reasons why the airspace surrounding Denver area airports has been identified for Metroplex development. The proposed Denver Metroplex project would allow for more direct and efficient routing of aircraft into and out of Denver and surrounding airports; thus enhancing aviation safety and reducing flight delays. The Denver Metroplex project is a federal action under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The FAA is completing an Environmental Assessment pursuant to NEPA. The Draft Environmental Assessment is anticipated to be released April 22, 2019. As part of this review, the FAA will hold 12 public workshops at multiple locations around the Denver Metro area. The workshop dates will be Monday through Thursday over a 3 week period (April 29, April 30, May 1, May 2; then May 6, May 7, May 8, May 9; and finally May 13, May 14, May 15, and May 16). The workshops will be held in the following areas: Aurora, Brighton, Broomfield, Boulder, two in the Centennial area, Denver, Erie, Green Valley Ranch, Greenwood Village, Longmont and Parker. The workshop times will be from 5pm to 7:30pm on each of the preceding dates. The workshop locations will be announced with the availability of the Draft Environmental Assessment. Residents of Denver and the surrounding areas are encouraged to attend the public workshops. A 45 day public comment period from April 22, 2019 through June 6, 2019 will be available within which to submit comments on the Draft Environmental Assessment. Additionally, the FAA will provide updates on the Denver Metroplex project website with information regarding the Draft Environmental Assessment and the public workshops.
