O'Hare Runways Deal Reached

By Chuck Sudo in News on Mar 14, 2011 3:05PM

The tribune is reporting that the Daley Administration has reached a deal with United and American Airlines to continue building new runways at O'Hare Airport. The deal is a coup for Daley in that it puts an end to the lawsuit filed by the two airlines to stop the project, which is part of the O'Hare expansion.

Sen. Mark Kirk let the cat out of the bag on WGN Radio this morning, but declined to give specifics. A press conference is scheduled for later this morning.
