On March 20th officials broke ground to expand O’Hare International, the only airport in the United States of America that can go to all six continents.  The multibillion-dollar project aims to add 10 new gates to Terminal 5 by 2021, which means that this travel hub will increase by roughly 350,000 square feet.  Giving a city with a global presence a further global reach.  This is only the first phase to take place of the total $8.5 billion project.  It will be the airport’s first major improvement in more than 25 years.  The plan includes improvements for security screening, new baggage systems, shelf service check-in kiosks, and 15 new locations for restaurants and retail.  The entire project is said to be done by 2028.
