Attention pilots and all other O’Hare airfield users:
On October 15, 2015, the O’Hare Modernization Program will reach a major milestone with the completion of south airfield construction and opening of new Runway 10R-28L. A new South Tower will also be commissioned that will control Runway 10R-28L.
The Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA) has developed "pilot awareness" posters that detail the upcoming airfield changes associated with the opening of Runway 10R-28L.
Click here to view/download the first “Runway 10R-28L” flier/poster. The material provides information about how Runway 10R-28L will be used, as well as new radio frequencies and final approach fixes.
Be on the lookout for more information coming soon.
Additional fliers/posters with information about runway configurations, taxiway operations and PRM associated with Runway 10R-28L will be posted on this page in the coming weeks.
The CDA needs your help in spreading the word among all key stakeholders about O’Hare’s new runway, taxiway system and air traffic control tower.
How You Can Help
October 15 is approaching fast. Here are some things you can do to help us spread the word:
• Post the flier on bulletin boards and in break rooms

The success of this campaign depends upon all of O’Hare’s users - from pilots to mechanics to motor truck drivers and many more. We appreciate your assistance in helping us spread the word about the opening of new Runway 10R-28L.
