    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    Background

    The FAA has prepared a Final Environmental Assessment (EA) to assess the potential environmental impacts of the Cleveland/Detroit Metroplex project in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, 42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq. This notice announces that based on the information and analysis contained in the Final EA, the FAA is issuing a Finding of No Significant Impact and Record of Decision (FONSI/ROD) for the project. The Final EA and FONSI/ROD document the FAA's determination that the 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 EA. The Cleveland/Detroit Metroplex project will improve the efficiency of the national airspace system in the Cleveland-Detroit area by optimizing aircraft arrival and departure procedures at 12 Cleveland-Detroit area airports.

    Availability: The Final EA and FONSI/ROD are available for public review at: (1) Online http://www.metroplexenvironmental.com/​cle_​dtw_​metroplex/​cle_​dtw_​docs.html. (2) Electronic versions of the Final EA and FONSI/ROD are available at 69 libraries in the General Study Area. A complete list of libraries with electronic copies of the Final EA and FONSI/ROD is available online http://www.metroplexenvironmental.com/​cle_​dtw_​metroplex/​cle_​dtw_​introduction.html.
