FAA Grants To Improve Operations At Atlanta


top story photo DOT announced more than $9 million in upgrades to improve operations at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International.

The projects are being funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and include a $5 million ARRA grant to install a new approach lighting system for Runway 27L. Further, more than $1.5 million was allocated to install a new engine generator system for FAA's airport traffic control tower.

ARRA funds also went to provide a $2.6 million power distribution system for the National Network Control Center in Hampton, Ga., which processes pilot flight plans. The new power system is comprised of two commercial power feeds, a standby generator, two uninterruptible power systems with battery back-ups and a power distribution system.
