OHare International Airport USGSRDES PLAINES – State Senator Laura Murphy (D-Des Plaines) invites local governments and members of the public to submit comments to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regarding the proposed Airport Terminal Area Plan and changes to air traffic procedures at Chicago O’Hare International Airport.

“Many members of the community stand to be affected by operational changes at O’Hare Airport,” Murphy said. “It’s important that every voice is heard during the planning process.”

The FAA is preparing an Environmental Assessment to analyze actions proposed by the Chicago Department of Aviation, including terminal projects, in-airport hotels, airfield and taxiway improvements, and support facilities.

The Environmental Assessment 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.

Government agencies, local officials and community members are encouraged to participate in the scoping process to provide input for the Environmental Assessment. Detailed descriptions of the proposed projects are available here.

The FAA is accepting comments via:
