KLOT Control Tower Project 2022


7/6/2022
We do not have a projected date of opening. The project has recently been plagued with delays – we will pass along the opening date as soon as we have a realistic time frame. Currently the effort has been centered on a partial occupancy permit. The basic fire alarm systems and back up electrical systems need to be completed. In August, the radio installers can enter the building and install the electronics. There will be a period when the new AWOS will be installed and the old system will be replaced. During our outage, the (JOT) Joliet Park District data is at: 119.35 or 815 730-9560.

Once the safety systems have been approved and the radio installation is completed, the tower will have an FAA inspection. From that point the controller scheduling can be planned.

FYI KLOT Radio frequency assignments: Tower 134.80, Ground 120.425

The parking lot and road project paving is completed, with landscaping soon. New street and parking lot lights have been installed and are working.
