Phase I: East Runway Drainage Repair Underway​. Drainage repair on the east side of the runway has started. Working from the southeast end of the airport back toward the north, the taxiway and apron to Runway 35 has been modified to accommodate a subterranean drain. As a result, the taxiway and apron to the runway hold line will have a greatly reduced slope. Now it will take far less power to taxi onto the runway and the apron area will remain dry. When exiting or taking off from Runway 35, having to ford a stream or risking a prop strike is now history.
