Detroit readies wrecking ball
Wayne County Airport Authority voted in favour yesterday of its Master Plan for Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County airport, which includes the construction of a seventh runway.
If approved by the US FAA, the forthcoming runway will need around 1,000 acres outside the airport’s current boundary.
Understandably, some property owners aren't happy, but that hasn't stopped progress in the past.
The airport’s fifth parallel runway will run east of the airport and be used for arrivals.
The authority says in a statement it expects the new runway could be needed in the 2018-2027 timeframe.
