Introduction

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

  • The Terminal Area Plan

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.
