South Suburban Airport

The State of Illinois continues to work on plans for the potential establishment of a proposed South Suburban Airport (SSA) that will be located near Peotone, IL. Based on FAA site approval granted in 2002, the State has been acquiring land to preserve the option of developing an inaugural airport (over 4,000 acres to date). The State is focused on initial establishment of an inaugural airport with the capability to expand to accommodate future market demand.

The state is currently evaluating the most appropriate method for developing, financing and operating the proposed airport. Once that is completed, Master Plan and Tier II Environmental Impact Statement activities may resume.
