(Note: the city is currently waiting on a grant to extend the runway out to 4,898’.  Work is scheduled to begin in September of 2020).  There is also a new parallel taxiway running the length of the runway which will be extended as part of the new construction project.  The cross wind turf runway, 22/4, is 2,635’ long by 150’ wide and is closed during the winter.  It will be taken out as part of the runway extension project.
