O’Hare’s new runway expansion is expected to bring noise to local neighborhoods, which is something they want stopped in its tracks.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, recently O’Hare saw a 1979 murder suspect arrested.
The Chicago O’Hare new runway expansion is set to open on October 17 of this year. Chicago was hit hard by the Great Recession and Chicago aviation officials believe the airport reconfiguration and expansion will bring more flights and economic growth to the struggling area.
People in the local neighborhoods complain that the O’Hare new runway expansion will be extremely noisy:
“Everybody talks about sound insulating you home, but if you’re outside, where you are most of the time especially during the nice weather, you can’t conduct a conversation, you cannot do anything.”
These neighborhoods appealed to US Representative Mike Quigley to intervene in the Chicago O’Hare new runway expansion project. While he believes the project needs to go ahead they will attempt to “mitigate the environmental cost, the noise cost.” Some homes might qualify for government-funded sound insulation installations to less any noise above 65 decibels coming from the.
Even more oddly, the Chicago O’Hare new runway expansion project might end up having goats instead of lawnmowers. One of these runway clearing goats recently escaped. So if the Chicago O’Hare new runway expansion puts the goats closer to neighborhood it’s not only the sounds of jet noises that people will be hearing.
Do you think the Chicago O’Hare new runway expansion project is a baaaaah, excuse me, bad idea?
