Next big public (or private) works project

So are there any big public work projects being proposed for Chicago? Something akin to redoing Wacker Drive or extending or improving the L or just generally something big that involves a lot of digging and noise?

The "O'Hare Modernization Program" is being called one of the country's largest construction projects and meets the rest of you criteria.
