    peotone airport........

    Just read that the Governor finally approved for the airport to get underway.......for me this is a little depressing, its going to be built right on the water shed for the Kankakee river (prolly the best smallmouth fishing in Illinois), anyone have anymore info on it?

    Where did you see/hear that?

    I don't think the state even owns 1/2 the land they need to get started. They have been talking about a Peotone airport for longer than I have been alive, I will believe it when I see it.

    Can't imagine a airport in Peotone being within 10 miles of the Kankakee River.

    Quinn signs law pushing Peotone Airport forward | WGN-TV

    Might not be built for a couple years, im not a political guy and normally dont read too much into things but it looks like its closer then it ever has been. Thats why i was hoping someone would shed some light on it for me
