Cemetery to be sold to city for O'Hare expansion
February 8, 2010 (WLS) -- A DuPage County judge ruled a cemetery must be sold to the city of Chicago so the O'Hare Expansion Project can be completed.
The 5.3-acre St. Johannes Cemetery lies between two segments of a new runway.
The judge ruled that title should be transferred to Chicago in exchange for $630,000.
The city could begin moving the roughly 1,200 graves within weeks though an appeal could stop that.
If everything goes the city's way, the new runway could be open by mid 2013.
