FAA Opens Public Comment Period for Logan Draft Environmental Assessment

Representatives of MassPort briefed legislative offices today about the FAA’s proposal for a satellite-guided airplane route that would reduce net noise pollution in the Greater Boston area. They indicated that an increase in noise levels in communities like Belmont and Watertown would be negligible and that no Boston neighborhood would see any increase in noise levels.
