Runway 9C-27C at O’Hare International Airport is 2-miles long, 200 ft wide, and can handle the largest aircraft currently in operation.
Our project team began construction of the Runway in May of 2017 following the low-bid award of Bid Package #1. The successful bidding and award of this project was an entry into the very competitive market of runway construction. The experience gained from constructing runways has led to three additional runway projects.
The commissioning of 9C-27C was a big deal for the City of Chicago, Department of Aviation, and the region. The additional runway increases efficiency and capacity while enhancing safety at the world’s busiest airport.
For our work on the O’Hare Modernization Program, we were awarded Contractor of the Year from the Chicago Department of Aviation and will be recognized at the Illinois Road and Transportation Builders Association (IRTBA) Awards Ceremony. Congratulations to our project team! Your efforts and success give F.H. Paschen a seat at the table for runway projects across the country for decades to come.
Congratulations to both the Bid Package #1 and Bid Package #2 project teams! Famously now known as FHP ORD OPS.
