Comment Period Open For The Cleveland Detroit Metroplex Project

Draft Environmental Assessment Open For Comments Through December 11

The FAA has prepared a Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Cleveland-Detroit Metroplex project that will be available for public comment beginning on Friday, November 10, 2017. The comment period will end on Monday, December 11, 2017.

Electronic versions of the Draft EA also will be available at 68 libraries in the study area. Residents may comment on the document electronically, through the U.S. mail, or at any of six open-house workshops, which will be held in late November and early December. Three of the workshops will be held in the Detroit metropolitan area, and three will be held in the Cleveland area.

The project’s proposed action would improve the efficiency of air traffic in and around the Cleveland and Detroit metropolitan areas. The project uses satellite-based technology to create changes to aircraft flight routes and altitudes in certain areas. Many of the routes overlay existing flight paths. It does not increase the number of aircraft taking off and landing, and it does not result in ground disturbance. Instead, the project develops more climbs and descents on departure and arrival routes, which can result in fewer delays. It enhances safety, and modernizes air traffic procedures to today’s standards.

The study area includes 12 airports areas around Cleveland and Detroit, including Cleveland Hopkins International Airport and Detroit Metro Airport.

The FAA invites the public to review the documents before attending informational workshops at the times and locations listed below. Representatives from the FAA will be available to answer questions and will accept written comments.
