Wichita Falls to reconstruct entry road to regional airport

WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - The final phase of the Wichita Falls Regional Airport project is about to begin. Tuesday, city council approved an application for a grant for $1 million to reconstruct Armstrong Drive, the entry road to the airport.

Director of Transportation, John Burrus, said the city identified it as a problem visually and based on its condition three to four years ago.

They now have the money to address it.

"We built a brand new $30 million airport facility," Burrus said. "That entry road is the last component of that project."

Burrus said the road was damaged during construction of the airport and some of the runways. No timetable is currently in place for construction.
