Pilot Awareness Campaign

Attention pilots and all other O’Hare airfield users:

On September 15, 2016, Runway 14R-32L at O'Hare International Airport will be renamed Runway 15-33. The runway name change follows the recent closure of Runway 14L-32R to accommodate further construction of the O’Hare Modernization Program.

In addition, the following airfield changes will also occur:

  • Northeast Cargo Ramp operational
  • 14R Pad renamed T Pad
  • Taxiway N4 republished
  • Taxiway F link to10L-28R closed
  • Taxiway SS operational
  • C Pad and U Pad

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