Columbia Regional Airport Receives Makeover with FAA Grants
COLUMBIA - Columbia Regional Airport runways are scheduled for a $28.5 million facelift beginning in spring 2012, thanks to a Federal Aviation Administration grant.
Renovation plans include taxiway improvements and land purchases to further extend the runways. The project will begin with the replacement of worn concrete on Runway 2-20, the longer of the 2 airport runways. Airport officials have begun purchasing additional land to further expand the runway.
The runway expansion process is expected to be complete in two to three years.
