FAA Denver Metroplex Project Workshop

Monday, May 6, 2019

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will hold 12 public workshops in the Denver metro area between April 29 and May 16 about proposed airspace improvements over the metro.

The proposed improvements are part of the Denver Metroplex project, which would use cutting-edge satellite navigation to move air traffic more safely and efficiently through the area. Satellite-based routes that would allow for more direct and efficient routing of aircraft into and out of Denver and surrounding airports; enhancing aviation safety and efficiency, and potentially reducing flight delays.

The Denver Metroplex project is a federal action under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the FAA is conducting an Environmental Assessment (EA) in keeping with NEPA. The FAA is scheduled to release the Draft EA on 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 three-week period: April 29-May 2; May 6-9; and May 13-16.The workshops will take place from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., and will be an open-house format, where people can attend any time during the posted times to learn about the project. They will take place in the following areas:  Aurora, Brighton, Broomfield, Boulder, two in the Centennial area, Denver, Erie, Green Valley Ranch, Greenwood Village, Longmont and Parker. The FAA will announce the workshop locations when the agency releases the project’s Draft EA. People can submit written comments on the Draft EA at the workshops and online during a 45-day public comment period that will run from April 22, 2019 through June 6, 2019.The FAA will consider all applicable comments we receive.   

The FAA will post the Draft EA and updates on the Denver Metroplex project website.
