O'Hare International Airport

 

The O’Hare Modernization Program (OMP), reflects the City of Chicago’s vision for the future of O’Hare. The OMP is transforming O’Hare’s intersecting system of runways into a modern, parallel runway layout, thus increasing the airport’s capacity, reducing delays and meeting the anticipated demand well into the future. Estimated at approximately $8 billion dollars, the OMP is the nation’s largest airport construction project. When the OMP is complete, O’Hare will have six east-west parallel runways and two crosswind runways. LiveWire participated in two projects as a part of this massive effort

 

TAXIWAYS K and L

 

As a subcontractor to the prime electrical contractor on this project, LiveWire installed duct banks, manholes, hand holes, taxiway lighting and illuminated taxiway signage for the extension and reconfiguration of Taxiway L at Runway 14R/32L and Taxiway K at the Southeast Cargo Area development.
