I was talking to a friend at work the other day and he said he heard MSP was getting a new control tower because someone wanted to build a hanger on a site that would block the view from the tower. He also said that the airline/company or what ever was offering to build the tower for the FAA.

Anyone have any info?

Also, I have been looking for an airport layout map of the runways when they are finished with the currant runway construction project, but cant find one.

Anyone know where I can get my paws on that?

Haven't heard anything about a new tower. Can't believe it would be an airline offering up a pricey bit of real estate like a new tower with the way things have been going for them. I suppose there are plenty of other possible parties. Can't wait to hear if anyone can confirm.

Here is a link to a diagram (it is pdf format)

Oh... wait... it looks like that diagram only had the "under construction" area drawn in. Sorry about that.

The MSP tower is scheduled to be replaced, from the info. I got. The Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) said it was necessary because the current tower won't be able to see all the new runway and/or aprons that are being constructed. They said it will be built in 2005.

I'll try and keep every one up-to-date via my website, http://mspupdate.tripod.com.
