The FAA EIS for LC-39A's DOD National Security Space Launch 2 upgrades is out;

 

pad upgrades including a HUGE Mobile Service Structure, and Falcon Heavy's NSSL Category 3 fairing.

 

FAA LC-39A EIS...(PDF)

 

LC-39A's MSS will be a clamshell affair, capable of fully enclosing F9/FH and withstanding a Category 5 hurricane.

 

And the new NSSL Categoty 3 fairing will be wider and longer,

 

Current: 5.2 x 13.1 meters (17 x 43 feet)

Category 3: 5.4 x 18.6 meters (17.7 x 61 feet)

 

This should stretch Falcon Heavy from 70 meters (229 feet) to 75 meters (247 feet)

 

Friggin' BEAST 😎
