To meet an expected 85% increase in air traffic by 1995, the City of Chicago is compressing an 11-year expansion of the Chicago-O'Hare International Airport into four years. The $1.4-billion program at the world's busiest airport is the city's largest public works project ever. The project overall will add 40 gates to the present 102, add new terminal buildings, improve and widen taxiways and runways, create new parking areas, and add a 3.1-mile elevated-rail peoplemover and new access roadways.
