Introduction

The City of Chicago Department of Aviation proposes to construct at Chicago O'Hare International Airport:

  • Terminal Projects
  • On-Airport Non-Aeronautical Projects (hotel developments)
  • Airfield and Taxiway Improvements
  • Support Facilities

The FAA proposes to permanently implement offset (angled) approach procedures at O'Hare for Runway 10R/28L that were temporarily approved in the 2015 Written Re-Evaluation for the O'Hare Modernization Environmental Impact Statement.

The FAA prepared a Draft Environmental Assessment and Draft General Conformity Determination to evaluate these changes proposed for Chicago O'Hare International Airport.
