Build the Chicago area’s third major airport just over the border in Indiana, near Gary or Hammond. That’s the solution to the metropolitan area’s airport problem.
The state of Indiana would get funds for workers and provide jobs to maintain the airport. Many of the workers would come from Illinois anyway, thus spending their paychecks in Illinois. This would strengthen both states’ economies. People traveling to this airport would most likely be coming to Chicago, for business and tourism, spending money in Chicago.
An airport near Peotone is way too far for people coming to or from Chicago unless a high-speed monorail were included.
