The Inglewood stadium has received the all-clear from the Federal Aviation Association.
The FAA released a statement Friday stating it has reached an agreement with Los Angeles Rams owner Stan Kroenke to proceed in its construction of the $2.6 billion project. The association had been concerned that the stadium would affect the radar at nearby Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
Under the agreement, Kroenke will pay $29 million to install a secondary aircraft tracking system that will augment the existing LAX radar system. The FAA says this action addresses concerns that the stadium height would negatively affect air traffic control radar signals by creating false aircraft images or unstable images on controllers' radarscopes.
The FAA concluded, "As a result of the agreement, the FAA is able to issue a determination that the stadium will not pose a hazard to navigable airspace or affect the flow of aircraft into LAX."
This settlement has no bearing on the FAA's ongoing review of the height for some of the cranes that are planned for use during construction.
