O’Hare noise complaints on pace to reaching record high

Some neighbors of O’Hare are complaining about airport noise.

In October, O’Hare added a new runway, and routed most of its takeoffs and landings in an east-west pattern.

So people who live just east, and just west of the airport, are now getting the noise that once spread to the airport’s north and south neighbors.

Noise complaints for 2013 are on pace to hit an all-time record.

The number is expected to rise in the spring, when people start opening their windows again.
