Gary/Chicago International Airport (KGYY) Runway Construction Update

Wednesday, January 29, 2014 @ 8:00 AM

Gary/Chicago International Airport (KGYY) is currently in the process of extending Runway 12/30 from 7003' to approximately 8900'.  An existing elevated railroad bed, located approximately 280' northwest of Runway 12/30, is being relocated as part of the project.

To reduce the risk of aircraft landing in the construction area, KGYY installed several large blue tarps on the future runway extension and painted yellow "X's" on the parallel taxiway.  Removal of the existing railroad bed and construction to connect the future runway extension and parallel taxiway to the existing pavement will begin in Spring 2014.
