Milwaukee - Chicago's Third Airport
Illinois is still trying to obtain federal funding for a third Chicago airport in south suburban Peotone. This plan was unlikely before O'Hare spent $8.7 billion on a modernization program; it's impossible now. A third Chicago airport was always unnecessary because Milwaukee is a $22 one hour train ride away from downtown Chicago (or an hour or so drive) with plenty of space and gates. Milwaukee is Chicago's third airport and has better prices on flights (even if their first connection is in Chicago), $5 a day parking, handles poor weather better, and a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
