If constructed, the proposed South Suburban Airport near Peotone, IL, would be the only US airport constructed from scratch as a public-private partnership, per Illinois Department of Transportation secretary Ann Schneider.
Two weeks ago, the state hired a company to advise it on public-private partnerships as it heads into this uncharted territory, Schneider said.
“I think that is going to drive a lot of the decisions that need to be made as we go forward,” she said.
Schneider said such partnerships have built international airports and additions to U.S. airports, but no airport in the country has been initially built here through the arrangement.
IDOT’s has its hands full in the area. In addition to the proposed South Suburban Aiport, the controversial Illiana Expressway, connecteing Lowell, IN, to Wilmington, IL, is still in the planning stages and subject to much controversy.
