The OMP—Two Years after the ROD

In this article (Paragraph No. 20,441) the Federal Aviation Administration approved the O’Hare Modernization Program (OMP) in a Record of Decision (ROD) on September 30, 2005. In this article, the authors discuss the progress the OMP has made since the issuance of the ROD. OMP funding comes from traditional airport sources, including General Airport Revenue Bonds, Passenger Facility Charges, federal Airport Improvement Program funds, and private investment. Upon issuance of the ROD, the City began construction in earnest, awarding over $763 million to date in construction contracts for Phase One of the OMP, with the first new runway, extension of an existing runway, and a new air traffic control tower scheduled for completion by November 2008. When the three runways and associated enabling projects comprising Phase One are finished, 65 percent of the airfield work needed for the OMP will have been completed.
