The first phase of a construction project at the Kirksville Regional Airport is set to wrap up tomorrow. Work has been ongoing for the past two weeks to improve the airport’s runway and taxiway. Assistant City Administrator Ash Young explains the purpose of the project.

The work to the runway and taxiway is designed to make it safer for pilots and travelers. Young says it is important to have the runway up to standards.

The Kirksville Regional Airport will reopen tomorrow, but work to continue to improve the airport will still be ongoing.
