O’Hare expansion is on… then off…

By Administrator |

A $15bn expansion of Chicago O’Hare Airport designed to ease some of the nation’s worst flight delays was halted by an appeals court last Friday just hours after it received the go ahead from the

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
Washington’s US Court of Appeals granted an eleventh hour stop on the project while it considers an emergency request filed by opponents, who argue that the expansion should be stopped because it would desecrate a cemetery with 1,300 tombs dating back to the 1800s.
The project calls for new and reconfigured runways, another terminal and parking for new generation planes. In its original approval, the FAA said the expansion would allow O’Hare to handle 1.2m landings and takeoffs a year, 300,000 more than at present.
