Chicago O'Hare International Airport gets runway grant


Chicago's O'Hare International Airport is getting a facelift, with the help of a $65 million federal grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation.

The money will go toward runway construction at the airport. The project includes adding and reconfiguring runways, expanding capacity and eliminating severe delays.

U.S. Rep. Mike Quigley announced the grant Tuesday, and says renovations to the airport will help Chicago O'Hare continue to be on of the country's top travel and shipping hubs.
