The center of the restricted area will be near the lakeshore on the South Side and will extend up to 30 nautical miles from that point, the FAA said. All airspace up to 18,000 feet above ground will be included in the restricted area.
A representative for the FAA was not available for comment.
It was not clear how the temporary restrictions would impact commercial airlines flying in and out of O’Hare and Midway airports.
A spokeswoman for United Airlines, whose hub is at O’Hare, said she had not been made aware of any planned flight disruptions due to the FAA’s temporary restrictions.
