Brief Description of Projects Partially Approved for Collection and Use at a $4.50 PFC Level:

Construction of runway 9C/27C

Determination: Partially approved for collection and use. The approved amount is the same as was requested by the public agency. However, the FAA questions the public agency's treatment of the salvage value of the various demolition components. In addition, the FAA has determined that only that portion of the project relating to the demolition of the current facility is PFC-eligible for the component identified as “relocation of Chicago Department of Aviation communications service center and airport repair and construction complex. Finally, due to the complex topography and construction conditions, and that fact that the public agency is requesting less than the full amount which would be PFC-eligible, the FAA is allowing the line item identified as “contingency.”

Runway 9R/27L Extension

Determination: Partially approved for collection and use. The approved amount is the same as was requested by the public agency. Due to the complex topography and construction conditions, and that fact that the public agency is requesting less than the full amount which would be PFC-eligible, the FAA is allowing the line item identified as “contingency.”

Runway 10R/28L Construction

Determination: Partially approved for collection and use. The approved amount is the same as was requested by the public agency. However, after the PFC application was submitted, the City received funding from the FAA to design and construct the South Air Traffic Control Tower. In addition, due to the complex topography and construction conditions, and that fact that the public agency is requesting less than the full amount which would be PFC-eligible, the FAA is allowing the line item identified as “contingency.”

Taxiway LL Construction

Determination: Partially approved for collection and use. The approved amount is the same as was requested by the public agency. Due to the complex topography and construction conditions, and that fact that the public agency is requesting less than the full amount which would be PFC-eligible, the FAA is allowing the line item identified as “contingency.”
