4 months ago by Scott Hardy

$429,000 studies are for rebuilding main runway and for a new apron and road to a new hangar

The Quincy City Council has given its' OK for the Airport to hire an engineering firm to conduct two studies as part of the Airport's improvements.

The Council Tuesday night approved two agreements with the firm of Crawford, Murphy and Tilly. They'll conduct two separate engineering studies at Quincy Regional Airport. One study, costing $118,000, will aid the Airport in Phase Two of its' reconstruction of Runway 4/22 and the removal of Runway 18/36. The City will only have to pay 5 per cent of the cost, with the US Department of Transportation and the Illinois Department of Transportation picking up the rest. The second study, costing $310,000, will be for engineering and planning for a general aviation apron and a new road to a new corporate hanger. The City will only pay 10 per cent of that cost, with the State of Illinois picking up the rest. After the meeting, Airport Director Sandra Shore explained who would use the new hangar.

The work at the Airport is expected to be completed by 2024 at the latest. The Council will hear a final reading next week of an ordinance to amend the current budget. That includes allocating over $9 million in un-allocated funding.
