Project Description: O’Hare Terminal Area Plan Env. Assessment Scoping



Learn about the proposed projects that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will study in the Chicago O’Hare International Airport Terminal Area Plan and Air Traffic Procedures Environmental Assessment.

The FAA is preparing an Environmental Assessment to evaluate the effects of the proposed Airport Terminal Area Plan and changes to air traffic procedures at Chicago O’Hare International Airport.

In the Environmental Assessment, the FAA will analyze actions proposed by the Chicago Department of Aviation, including: terminal projects, on-airport hotels, airfield and taxiway improvements not required by the terminal projects, and support facilities that are not required by the terminal projects.

The Environmental Assessment will also evaluate air traffic actions proposed by the FAA to make permanent the previously approved temporary offset approaches to Runway 10R/28L.

The Environmental Assessment’s analyses will determine whether the proposed projects have the potential to significantly affect various environmental resources, such as noise, air quality, water resources, and historic facilities.

The FAA is seeking early involvement and consultation with Federal, state, and local government agencies and officials as well as members of the public regarding this Environmental Assessment. The comments and concerns raised by members of the public during the scoping period will help the FAA define the range of environmental issues and identify possible alternatives to study in the Environmental Assessment.

• Scoping materials outlining the proposed projects and actions, alternatives, and purpose and need are available at http://www.faa.gov/airports/great_lakes/TAPandATEA. There, you can also find out how to submit your scoping comments by mail, email, voicemail, or online portal. The 45-day scoping period runs from May 25, 2021 – July 9, 2021.
• Comments must be postmarked, submitted online, or submitted via email or voicemail by midnight Central time July 9, 2021.

Thank you for watching! The next video will explain how the FAA will evaluate the proposed projects and their alternatives.
