Congressman Visclosky released the statement below following the announcement that an agreement was reached between Gary/Chicago International Airport and Canadian National Railway, allowing the airport's expansion to continue.

"I applaud Mayor Freeman-Wilson, the Gary/Chicago International Airport Authority Board Members, Governor Daniels, the Regional Development Authority, and the Canadian National Railway Company for negotiating in good faith to ensure construction related activity will continue as scheduled to meet the deadline of expending federal, state, and local resources to maximize the economic potential of this great asset. The men and women who have been diligently working on the runway's extension and the relocation of the existing railroad tracks can now continue their hard work to complete this project, and the residents of Northwest Indiana can look forward to the enhanced economic opportunities associated with possessing the third major airport in the Chicagoland area."
