BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Engineers are designing a new $11 million landing system for the Baton Rouge Metro Airport.

Officials say they hope it will improve safety and help lure cargo carriers to the airport.

The airport's assistant director of aviation said the new system would allow planes to descend farther before deciding whether to attempt to land or not.
