Why This One U.S. Airport May Soon Become The Very Best
Known for being one of the busiest airports in the world, Chicago O’Hare International may have a major renovation in its future. All the details may not be 100% official just yet, but if things go as planned, here’s what you can expect.
Set to be completed in 2026 and to take place over the course of eight years, the renovation will cost an estimated $8.5 billion dollars. All that cash will make the airport a global aviation hub, and local officials like Mayor Rahm Emanuel say that the enormous investment is necessary if O’Hare wants to keep up with other international airports.
So, what exactly will the money be used for? One of the first things you’ll see happen is the tearing down of the over 50-year old Terminal 2. The terminal will be transformed into a new Global Terminal, featuring more gates that will be able to accommodate larger planes used for international travel. Money for the airport’s expansion would also go toward renovating Terminals 1, 3 and 5, with all of the new renovations almost doubling the size of O’Hare International terminal space.
