Airport Runway Project

There will be a major construction project next year to improve the crosswind runway at the Chan Gurney Airport, with no cost to the city.

Yankton Community & Economic Development Director Dave Mingo says this will not affect the main runway, but repairs to the crosswind runway are badly needed.

Mingo says this two-point-three million dollar project will be completely funded by a federal grant with no cost share for the city.

Mingo says the project will be started and completed next year at the Yankton Airport.
