Airport Terminal Program (ATP)
Federal Fiscal Year
Contract Tower Replacement
Federal Aviation Administration
Project Narrative: Martin State Airport (MTN) is a national reliever in the Washington D.C./Baltimore region. It is the second busiest general aviation airport in MD serving multiple flight schools, first responders, and the MD Air National Guard. This project replaces the 74-year-old Airport Traffic Control Tower (ATCT), one of the nation's oldest, greatly improving overall controller line-of-sight, depth perception, ADA compliance, and working environment. The new tower will be a stand-alone facility located near the airfield midpoint, on an elevated site providing climate change and operational resiliency.
The construction/relocation of a replacement tower assures MTN is able to continue as a GA reliever airport for BWI Marshall Airport and the Washington-Baltimore region. It will enhance operational efficiency and safety within a crowded Potomac TRACON airspace corridor and accommodate FAA forecast growth for corporate/private, flight training, maintenance, law enforcement and military aviation activity.
