Springdale Municipal Airport Reopens After Extensive Runway Repairs

News

SPRINGDALE, Ark. (KNWA) — The Springdale Municipal Airport has officially reopened after undergoing over $2 million worth of runway repairs.

Adam White, an airport engineer who helped oversee the construction project, said the Springdale airport is one of the busiest in the state.

He said over 100 aircrafts are currently based there, and these newly unveiled repairs will allow some of the larger airlines and jets travel through it.

In addition to a new asphalt overlay on the runway, the airport also installed new LED lights which saves money and provides better visibility for pilots.

“Getting this done allows the big jets to come in here safe and efficiently without issue of damaging the pavement out here, and the new lighting system is all LED so it will reduce the cost to run the airport and keep the lights on and give the airport a more safe and efficient runway to use,” White said.
