The $7-million runway project at the Charlottetown Airport is into its final stages.
The paving of the 2-thousand-foot extension to the Airport’s second (or crosswind) runway has been completed.
Crews are now working on the last few odds and ends, such as edge lighting, and the painting of lines.
The project is on-budget, and on-schedule, and the now 7000-foot runway will be active later this summer or fall.
The extension was needed because the main runway has to be shut down for much of next year for upgrades. This will also give the airport two runways that can handle commercial planes, and crosswind situations.
