Pollution stalls airport expansion

The Gary airport's runway extension will pass directly through the

NBD Trust and Conservation Chemical properties. The airport has

been negotiating with environmental agencies on cleaning up

hazardous chemicals long known to saturate the ground there. On

Tuesday, city and airport officials said discoveries of even more

pollution means the airport's runway expansion cannot be

completed until September 2014.
