CHICAGO - A new air traffic control tower and runway opened this morning at O'Hare International Airport.
It's part of a long-term overhaul to increase capacity and cut down on delays.
The runway will be used mainly for planes arriving from the west, with 125 flights projected to land between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.
The runway costs $516 million, but a new report from the Better Government Association says the runway will handle only five percent of the total flights for the first five years.
Jet noise complaints have skyrocketed to record levels with the new flight patterns.
