The North Runway will be increased in length? It is planned to be how much longer?
The current North Runway is 3,000 ft. long. The proposed expansion will lengthen the North Runway to
a 6,000 ft.
The proposal is to extend the North Runway 1,800 ft to the West towards Sawmill Rd and 1,200 to the
East toward Godown/Linworth Rd. The expaned North Runway will be 1,000 feet longer than the current
South Runway. 6,000 ft is all that can physically fit between Sawmill and the railroad tracks. The
longer runway would make it possible for heavier, and noisier transcontinental jets to take off.
