Woolpert Senior Aviation Project Manager, Curtis Brown, said:

“The goal of the airport master plan is to determine the most viable, cost-effective improvements to increase the volume and versatility of the airport. Woolpert will evaluate realigning and extending the primary runway to accomplish this mission.”
