AIRGeorgia funds to assist in the extension and widening of the runway to 5,000 feet to support larger jet type aircraft and other medium size aircraft. The project scope calls for the extension of and widening of runway 08-26 at the airport from 4,005 feet by sixty feet to 5,000 feet by 100 feet including lighting and marking. Existing runway width does not meet FAA and State requirements. The extension is necessary in order to utilize the airport as an economic resource for the area to spur economic growth by being better able to serve large industries and small businesses, which will lead to new capital investment and new job growth in the area. This project has potential to create future direct and indirect jobs.
