The article reports on the efforts of the managers from runway expansion project at O'Hare International Airport in Chicago, Illinois in dispelling concerns that the decision to reject certain construction bids on the first new runway would drive up the cost and lead to an overall delay in the proposed 2013 completion date. The expansion project is worth 7.5 billion dollars. City officials announced that they had rejected bids on paving, signage and electrical work for the first runway because the lowest bid of 58 million dollars was too high.
