Rapid City Airport runway getting a makeover


The runway at Rapid City Regional Airport will soon get a makeover.

The Federal Aviation Administration has approved a grant for the complete renovation of the primary runway, which includes rebuilding some sections.

The $3.46 million dollar grant will also secure matching funds of $192,000 dollars from both the airport and the South Dakota Department of Transportation.

The funds will also be used for a wildlife hazard management project to study what can be done to reduce the possibility of birds damaging aircraft or causing more serious accidents.

Construction on the runway is expected to be complete in June of 2014.
