Midway Airport gets $10M for noise reduction

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Midway Airport is getting more than $10 million for noise reduction.

The cash is a grant from the FAA, which will be used to give some nearby homes sound insulation.

Noise complaints from the airports neighbors have gone up since flight paths were changed last year.

Another $210,000 will be used to buy new equipment for the airport.
