Introduction

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

  • The Terminal Area Plan
  • Capital Improvement Program projects
  • Hotel developments

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 is conducting an Environmental Assessment to evaluate these changes proposed for Chicago O'Hare International Airport.

Updates on the project, including the FAA's publication of environmental documents, will be added to this website.
