Boston Overflight Noise Study
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in conjunction with Massport and the Community Advisory Committee (CAC), has undertaken a study of how to reduce noise impacts from aircraft overflights to and from Boston Logan International Airport. This study, known as the Boston Overflight Noise Study, is a two-phased effort. Phase 1 will define and, to the extent feasible implement changes to flight tracks to minimize impacts from aircraft overflights which do not require detailed environmental assessment. Phase 2 will address additional noise abatement alternatives that will require detailed analysis to meet FAA environmental requirements. Federal funding for phase 2 will be requested prior to May 1, 2006 to ensure seamless continuation of the study and transition into the EIS process. Based on availability of federal funds, the study will then move immediately into phase 2. Phase 1 began in August and is expected to be completed in December 2005. Phase 2 will begin immediately following Phase 1 and is expected to take another two to three years.
Two teams of consultants have been hired to assist the study sponsors with this program. One team is serving as the project consultant and is responsible for conducting all the technical analysis for the study. The second consulting team is serving as a technical resource working directly for the CAC.
