Do you think that it is taking too much time to lengthen the runways at T.F. Green Airport?

The Federal Aviation Administration wants to lengthen the runways at T.F. Green Airport so that it can handle larger planes and help ease the congestion that plagues Boston’s Logan International Airport.

The process has been going on for nearly a decade, and still there is no firm date in sight for when a plan will be chosen or not.

Last week, another deadline passed for Warwick to give its official response to the most recent environmental impact statement, and the next public meeting over the expansion plans is to held in early June. It is expected that at that point the FAA will make public its preferred plan, but it is not clear that at that moment there will be a resolution and the Airport Corporation can proceed with construction.

Has this process dragged on for too long?
