Our friends at Inside INdiana Business recently spoke with Gary Mayor Rudy Clay about the status of the Gary/Chicago Airport, which is undertaking some improvements. Here is audio of the conversation, in which Clay explains the positive working relationship the city has with Chicago officials.
Clay says the goal of the rennovation at Gary/Chicago International Airport is not to compete with Chicago’s two airports, but to work along side of them. Clay says those airports have heavy traffic and need more gates to handle the load. The $153 million project includes a major runway expansion and new railroad bridges, routes and demolition lines. Groundbreaking comes this afternoon.
