I had the chance to take a tour of the new 9L/27R runway at Chicago O'Hare International Airport earlier this week. The new runway is scheduled to open on Nov. 21. The day I was there, FAA was testing NavAids on the runway. Click here to listen to my chat with Jim Proside, the project's assistant resident engineer for the 9L/27R paving project. And you can click here to see my Flickr photos of the new runway.
