Safety improvements planned at Mount Pleasant Regional Airport
The runway at Mount Pleasant Regional Airport will be closed for five days in October so that safety improvements required by the Federal Aviation Administration can be performed.
The Runway Safety Area Improvements Project is scheduled to begin on or about Oct. 14, depending on the weather.
Work will entail grading and reseeding the grassy shoulder at the end of the runway as required by updated FAA safety criteria. Work is expected to take five days to complete. In the event of bad weather, work may be delayed or rescheduled.
