Chicago O’Hare International Airport will receive new runways and other upgrades as part of a $65 million investment from the U.S. Department of Transportation.

The investment in the world’s fourth busiest airport was unveiled by the U.S. Secretary of Transportation, Elaine Chao.

“These construction of runways will help Chicago maintain its status as one of the busiest in the world,” said Federal Aviation Administration Assistant Administrator Bailey Edwards.

In total, the FAA will award $495 million in airport infrastructure grants, the second allotment of Airport Improvement Program funds raised by the Passenger Facility Charge levied at commercial airports.
