Community Involvement — Denver

Update: Denver Metroplex Draft Environmental Documentation and Information released April 22, 2019

Status of Engagement: Environmental Review

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is providing this update as of April 12, 2019 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 beginning April 29. The workshop dates, locations and address information is contained on this webpage. 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.

The project website is located at: http://www.metroplexenvironmental.com/denver_metroplex/denver_introduction.html.

Environmental Process

Before the FAA can implement any new procedures, Federal law and FAA policy require the FAA to conduct environmental reviews in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). These reviews will lead to an Environmental Assessment (EA) expected to be finalized in 2019.

As part of this EA review, the FAA will hold a series of community meetings in 2019 in which comments on the draft EA are welcome. The FAA will review all EA comments before making a final determination.
