The proposed CTAP changes could affect flights to and from airports within the Chicago region. The project is not associated with any airport development projects and does not require construction of any physical facilities. The changes proposed by CTAP are designed to improve traffic flows and reduce airborne and ground delays. They would enhance safety and efficiency by maximizing controller flexibility and simplifying operations for pilots. CTAP has the potential to enhance air quality by reducing en route mileage. As disclosed in the FEIS, CTAP would not result in significant adverse impacts to any resource category.

Council on Environmental Quality Regulations for Implementing the Procedural Provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act set forth that no decision on a proposed action shall be made by a Federal agency until 30 days after the Environmental Protection Agency publishes, in the Federal Register, a notice that the FEIS has been filed with them.

The FAA will assess and consider any written correspondence it receives on the CTAP FEIS until close of business, Tuesday, October 9, 2001. Late received correspondence will be considered to the extent feasible. This document will be available during normal business hours at the following locations.:
