Air Force Reserve, Morgantown to Partner on Runway expansion


The Morgantown Municipal Airport is partnering with the Air Force Reserve on a runway extension project.

The city expects the partnership to save it at least $8 million in construction costs. The city says it hopes to put the savings toward its match for Federal Aviation Administration funding for the project.

The city said Sunday in a news release that Air Force Reserve engineers could begin work in the spring of 2016.

The city says the Air Force Reserve plans to submit a package for the 2016 fiscal year to support the project as part of its Innovative Readiness Training program.
