Pilot Awareness Campaign

Attention Pilots and All Other Airfield Users:

On March 29, 2018 another major milestone will be reached as part of the O'Hare Modernization Program (OMP). Runway 15/33 (formerly 14R/32L) will be closed and converted into Taxiway SS . The north portion will be demolished this spring to allow for construction of Runway 9C/27C, which is scheduled to open in late 2020.

In addition, the following taxiway name changes will also occur:

  • T1 relocates
  • T2 closes
  • T8 closes
  • T9 becomes K
  • T10 becomes L

The Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA) has developed a "pilot awareness" flier/poster that details the upcoming airfield changes.
