DOT SECRETARY CARD ANNOUNCES APPROVAL OF WAYNE COUNTY AIRPORT PFC

DOT SECRETARY CARD ANNOUNCES APPROVAL OF WAYNE COUNTY AIRPORT PFC
 WASHINGTON, Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Secretary of Transportation Andrew H. Card Jr. today announced approval of the Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport's application to impose passenger facility charges (PFCs) to raise $640.7 million over the next 16 years.
 Today's action authorizes Wayne County to begin charging departing passengers a $3 fee on Dec. 1.
 Deputy Federal Aviation Administration Administrator Barry Lambert Harris made the formal announcement at a Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport news conference.
 Among the projects to be funded by the PFCs are a south airport access road, stormwater and drainage facilities, noise berm construction and a noise mitigation program.
 The FAA said PFCs will fund three additional projects at the airport. They include a midfield terminal facility, reconstruction of existing terminals and concourses, and land acquisition and design for a fourth parallel runway.
 The FAA said that Detroit's Willow Run Airport also has been approved to impose PFCs. The fees would pay for a snow removal equipment storage building, fencing and hazard removal, extension of Runway 5R-23L and relocation of a road and utilities, resurfacing of Runway 14-32, and purchase of snow removal equipment.
 The estimated total cost of all approved projects in the application exceeds $1 billion. An estimated 200 airports are expected to be participating in the PFC program by the end of 1993.
 The PFC program was authorized by the Congress in the Aviation Safety and Capacity Expansion Act of 1990, which specified that the money must be used to preserve or enhance the capacity, safety and security of the air transportation system, promote competition, reduce noise, or expand passenger facilities.
