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.
Public Involvement Process
Thank you for your interest in engaging in the Environmental Assessment process. The FAA held a 45-day public comment period for the scoping process for this project from May 25-July 9, 2021. During the scoping process, the FAA sought input from the public and other agencies to define the range of environmental issues and possible alternatives to study in the Environmental Assessment.
Throughout the Environmental Assessment process, the FAA is coordinating and consulting with other agencies, such as Federal, state, tribal, and local officials.
The FAA will invite the public and other agencies to comment on the draft version of the Environmental Assessment and will respond to comments in the Final Environmental Assessment.
During the scoping process, the FAA provided the following information about the proposed changes, as well as the four program videos in the right sidebar.
