The CDA has updated the Runway Rotation Test schedule for the Week of November 6th. Because the pavement rehabilitation for Runway 10L-28R will continue during the that week, a previously identified construction alternative has been confirmed as necessary for the rotation schedule.

Specifically for the week of November 6th, we removed the arrival and departure arrows for Runway 10L-28R and kept the construction alternative arrows for arrivals and departures on Runways 9R-27L and 10C-28C. We also changed the black flag “Construction Status Pending” to a yellow flag “Updated 10/28/2016”.

Updated Schedule (as of 10/28/16)

 

The CDA has updated the Runway Rotation Test schedule for the Week of October 23rd.  Because the pavement rehabilitation for Runway 10L-28R will continue during the week of October 23rd, a construction alternative is necessary for the rotation schedule.  Specifically, aircraft arrivals in the secondary configuration will now be on Runway 10C-28C, not 10L-28R as originally planned.  The CDA has therefore updated the arrow icons and added a yellow flag for the week of October 23rd.

The CDA has updated the Runway Rotation Test schedule for the Week of September 11th. When the CDA submitted the rotation schedule the FAA, we had anticipated construction on Runway 10L-28R for pavement rehabilitation during the week of September 11th, and had therefore identified a construction alternative of Runway 10C-28C as the rotation runway. The CDA has confirmed that Runway 10L-28R will be in construction for nighttime hours during the week of September 11th, and that the construction alternative is needed.

Therefore we modified the schedule to remove the arrival arrow on 10L in the primary configuration; the secondary configuration remains unchanged. We have also changed the black flag “Construction Status Pending” to a yellow flag “Updated 9/2/2016”.

All versions of the Fly Quiet rotation schedule are updated and posted to the project website at www.flychicago.com/flyquiettest.
