Is there any chance that the runway will be repaired and the airport will become operative again? Or is this just a way of dragging Daley down with the airport....?

Exactly DeltaAS.

Daley, being a pompous @$$hole, certainly is no fool. The damage is already done. Who's going to pay for the repairs-assuming of course AOPA and Co. get the green light?

>>>Who's going to pay for the repairs-assuming of course AOPA and Co. get the green light?

With any luck, the reported $500,000 cost to rebuild CGX's runway will come out of federal funds allocated for ORD or other city projects.

Why do I think so? Check out the last two paragraphs from the article linked above:


" Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) called the closing an "act of arrogant recklessness" and hinted the consequence may be a loss of federal transportation funds for the city."

"Daley brushed off suggestions that the heavy-handed maneuver would cost the city state and federal money."


So, here's a situation where Hizzoner publicly got caught in "the big lie", has got key Congressional folks (who control $$$ allocations) pissed off at him, and now he demonstrates his continued arrogance (and not having learned his lesson) by his "brushing off" suggestions that funding will be affected. That won't sit too well with the DC folks, who will undoubtedly see it as a "dare" and react accordingly.

Also, even if you can pin this on Mr. Daley, "forcing" him to pay for it, you realize that he will likely stall the rebuilding phrase almost, if not actually forever through "permit alocation", "bidding", and other [real or imaginary] bureaucracy. [this is how the NIMBY's have de facto killed the 710 Pasadena Freeway project here in SoCal. The project is still 'pending', but thanks to their stall tactics, 30 years later, there is yet to be a 710 freeway going through Pasadena.]

I hate to say this, but it looks like the permanent fester is that he won and you lost.

See that is the problem

In Chicago a Daley never enters something he can't rig.



OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.

The real blow to Daley would be to hit him where it really hurts - federal fundings for airport and ground transportation. They are not really worried while O'Hare fundings are in limb; they would be scared if you'd bring someone to check their books on highway fundings.
