He says "modernizing Chicago O'Hare will ensure the airport remains one of the top travel and shipping hubs in the country."

The multibillion-dollar project to reconfigure and add runways at O'Hare began more than a decade ago. It's aimed at expanding capacity and eliminating severe delays.

The grant money for O'Hare comes from the U.S. Department of Transportation.
