Notice of Availability for the FAA Denver Metroplex Project Final Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact and Record of Decision

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has prepared a Final Environmental Assessment (EA) to assess the potential environmental impacts of the Denver Metroplex Project (DEN Metroplex). This notice announces that based on the information and analysis contained in the Final EA and after reviewing the comments received on the Final EA, as well as comments related to Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, the FAA is issuing a Finding of No Significant Impact and Record of Decision (FONSI/ROD) for the DEN Metroplex Project. The FONSI/ROD documents the FAA’s determination that the DEN Metroplex Project, as proposed, would not significantly affect the quality of the human environment and that an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is therefore not necessary. The FONSI/ROD documents the FAA’s decision to proceed with the preferred alternative detailed in the Final EA. The DEN Metroplex Project will improve the efficiency of the national airspace system in the Denver metropolitan area by optimizing aircraft arrival and departure procedures at five area airports.

The FONSI/ROD and Final EA are available here. For additional information, contact:
