FAA Sets Scoping Meetings on LaGuardia Transit Plan

The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey plans to build an elevated, automated people mover that would provide direct access between LaGuardia Airport and Willets Point in Queens, where passengers can connect to the New York City subway system and the Long Island Rail Road. LaGuardia Airport currently is accessible only by road.

The Federal Aviation Administration will host two public scoping meetings on June 5 and 6 for the Environmental Impact Statement for the proposed LaGuardia Airport Access Improvement Project. The meetings will help interested members of the public learn about the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey's proposed project to build an elevated, automated people mover that would provide direct access between LaGuardia Airport and Willets Point in Queens, where passengers can connect to the New York City subway system and the Long Island Rail Road. LaGuardia Airport currently is accessible only by road.

The meetings will help to define the scope of issues to be addressed in the study.

The Port Authority intends to submit an application to the FAA to impose and use passenger facility charges to fund the project. As a result, the FAA is the lead agency for the project and is conducting the EIS. Scoping is a required part of the EIS process.

The meetings will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. both days at the New York LaGuardia Airport Marriott Hotel at 102-05 Ditmars Blvd. in East Elmhurst, Queens. Those who attend the meetings can make private comments to a stenographer or complete and submit a comment card. Also, members of the public can send comments at any time during the comment period to this address: [email protected] The public comment period runs from May 3 to June 17.
