Gary/Chicago International Airport (KGYY) offers master plan update

The Gary/Chicago International Airport will host a public presentation Monday on the ongoing update of its master plan.

The presentation, the first of three that are planned, will be at 6 p.m. at the airport terminal, 6001 Airport Road.

The new master plan will update one completed in 2001. It will assess the short- and long-term needs of the airport based on projections of activity at the airport for the next 20 years.

The Airport Authority engaged transportation and airport planning firm Jacobsen/Daniels in July 2016 to update the master plan. The $870,000 contract calls for the plan to be completed within 18 months.

Attendees at Monday's event will hear a short presentation, then have the opportunity to discuss the project with airport staff and members of the master plan consultant team.
