7/3/2018 - Airport Project Environmental Assessment approved on Tuesday - Click here to print this information

Jon Dooley, Vice President of the Greensburg Board of Aviation Commissioners, reported Tuesday morning that the Environmental Assessment for the proposed new runway project for the Greensburg airport was approved by the Director of the Great Lakes Region of the Federal Aviation Administration. He reported that the assessment was a 700 page document that has taken about 10-11 years to gain approval from the FAA. He stated that this is the final step to proceed with the project.

The Board of Aviation Commissioners received a grant last year that could not be drawn upon until the Environmental Assessment was approved. Mr. Dooley stated that the next steps in the process are surveying and federal appraisals of properties that would be purchased as part of the project.

He reported that the new runway will be 100 feet wide compared to the 40 feet wide of the current runway. The length of the runway will increase from 3400 feet to 5405 feet, which Mr. Dooley stated would create a business quality runway that will serve as an infrastructure improvement that will allow businesses to proceed and flourish in Greensburg, Decatur County, and surrounding communities.
