Runway Construction Update

Runway Construction Update

The Sheridan County Airport is in the middle of runway construction, but great care is being taken to prevent disruption of air traffic.

The runway being re-paved runs parallel to the main runway. Airport manager, John Stopka, said the airport is still functional, but planes taking off do start their journey a little differently.

“Back taxi” means planes have to go all the way to the end of the main runway and then turn around 180 degrees before takeoff. Stopka said a small portion of the project involves re-paving the intersection with the new runway. The construction crew is going to be working odd hours to enable the airport to run as usual. usual.

The project is running a few days behind schedule, but is expected to be complete at the beginning of next month.
