In addition to O'Hare and Midway, will the third airport in the Chicago area ever see the light of day? The project first formulated in the mid 1990s, and strongly supported by Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., with the approval of Barack Obama in 2004, needs to be implemented now. Located south of Chicago's southern suburbs, it would provide sorely needed job opportunities.
Suggestion: may the planners provide some decent public transport to and from the airport, which is one of the aspects that makes O'Hare so attractive.
