Improvements At Airport Move Into Next Phase
Repairs to the runway at the Chillicothe Airport will take place in late 2019 or early 2020, but the engineering work will begin soon. The Chillicothe City Council approved the contract with Lochner for the final design and bidding service for the project that will be largely funded by MoDOT. City Administrator Darin Chappell says the city will pay for about 20% of the project.
Chappell says this is for the current runway, not for the proposed crosswind runway the city has been working toward for many years.
