Brookings Airport Closed



STARTING THIS MORNING, THE BROOKINGS AIRPORT IS CLOSED AND WILL REMAIN UNDER CONSTRUCTION MOST OF THE WEEK. AIRPORT MANAGER PHILIP TIEDEMAN SAYS THE AIRPORT WILL BE CLOSED FOR ABOUT FOUR DAYS, DEPENDING ON THE WEATHER. HE SAYS THEY'RE TAKING ALL NECESSARY SAFETY PRECAUTIONS. THE CONSTRUCTION IS PART OF THE AIPORT'S RUNWAY REALIGNMENT PROJECT. THE CITY NEEDS TO REALIGN THE RUNWAYS TO OBEY FEDERAL SAFETY RULES REGARDING BUILDINGS THAT ARE IN THE AIRPORT'S RUNAWAY PROTECTION ZONE.
