Runway expansion set to take flight
Placeholder Image
Warren County Memorial Airport is making preparations for expanding the facility, which will occur after the construction of the new four-lane to Woodbury is complete.Once that happens, plans are to close down a section of the current two-lane road in front of the airport and route traffic around to the new four-lane. The current runway will then be extended by 500 feet allowing the airport to accommodate larger aircraft.“In the years down the road when the new four-lane opens and we’re able to close this portion of the two-lane road that runs between the two pieces of airport property here, there will be a 500-foot asphalt extension,” said airport manager John Patterson. “This will gain us another 500 feet of takeoff space, but it will gain us 800 feet of landing area.
