The extension should be complete in late 2024 or early 2025. 25 – 40 percent should be complete this year
MACON, Ga. — The Middle Georgia Regional Airport has some new upgrades planned, like a new two-story corporate terminal building that will hold conference rooms, restaurants, and gathering spaces. They are also planning on building a new air traffic tower.
Tuesday morning, they broke ground for their runway extension.
Megan Western was there to tell us more about this extension and all of its benefits.
The project has been in the works for four decades, and now it’s finally taking flight. They expect 25 – 40 percent to be complete this year.
Now they’ll have 600 more feet to bring back cargo carriers, and help new and current businesses
“We’ll be able to track larger aircraft that requires the additional distance and aircraft that are currently using can use it without being penalized,” says Doug Faour
The airport says it will make room for more commercial airlines to new destinations.
