Still No Decision on New Air Traffic Control Center in Northeast

A report from the Department of Transportation says there’s still no decision on where to build a new air traffic control center that will serve the busy New York, New Jersey, and Philadelphia metro areas.

The report issued this week by DOT’s Inspector General says the Federal Aviation Administration still has to make several key decisions about the new facility and about how to move forward with a broader consolidation plan.

The FAA plans to consolidate 49 aging air traffic facilities in the Northeast at a cost of about $2.3 billion.

Politicians and local officials in Long Island say the new facility should be built there.

The FAA says in a statement that it will work with the Inspector General on improving the consolidation process.
