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.
