CHICAGO — Federal officials yesterday announced $410 million in new funding to help support Chicago’s $8 billion runway expansion project at O’Hare International Airport, an award that comes one week ahead of the city’s sale of more than $1.1 billion of new-money and refunding O’Hare debt.

The long-planned transaction that will wrap up borrowing to finance the first phase of the $8 billion O’Hare modernization program includes six series of new-money and refunding bonds totaling more than $1 billion, backed by a third-lien general airport revenue bond pledge.
