The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) dedicated a new Terminal Radar Approach Control (TRACON) facility that will be better able to handle the expected growth in flight operations in the Houston area.

The Houston TRACON is responsible for controlling air traffic over roughly 16,000 square miles of airspace stretching from the Texas-Louisiana border to approximately 35 miles east of Austin and from Galveston to 30 miles north of College Station. The City of Houston is leasing the 47,500 square-foot facility to the FAA at no cost. The new TRACON is located on 21 acres of land at George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) facility and replaces an outdated structure that was commissioned more than 40 years ago.
