The recently extended runway at the Cleveland Regional Jetport will be fully operational soon, according to Mark Fidler, director of operations.
Fidler told members of the City of Cleveland Municipal Airport Authority Friday inquiries from the Federal Aviation Administration had delayed the project, with regulators requesting the purchase of adjacent land located underneath a portion of an aircraft landing path.
The runway was extended 700 feet last year to 6,200 feet.
However, after several months of review, the FAA ultimately concluded the land, which is farmland not occupied by residential or commercial structures, will not be required to be purchased by the board.
The delay caused planes approaching from north to land on an adjacent runway.
Fidler said the new runway can be used as soon as paint markings are complete.
In other business the board approved:
• A retro motion authorizing the chairman to sign Hinkle Contracting change order No,. 1 in the amount of $5,633.09 for the adjustment of as built quantities for the runway extension project.
• A retro motion authorizing the chairman to sign PDC addendum No. 2 in the amount of $6,1253.00 for Professional Services to include remarking and lighting for the runway extension project.
The next regularly scheduled meeting will be 9 a.m. Friday, Jan. 18, 2019.
