By on January 3, 2018 in WNDB News

Palm Coast, FL – The Flagler County Executive Airport will celebrate a ribbon cutting for its new 5,500-foot runway in Palm Coast on January 8.

The ribbon-cutting begins at 11:30 AM. Guests are asked to park either at the Flagler Executive Airport Administration Office or in the grassy area to the north of the office. Airport staff will guide attendees to shuttle buses.

“On behalf of the Flagler County Board of County Commissioners, I extend an invitation to all to help us celebrate the completion of this year-long construction project,” Commission Chair Greg Hansen says.

The project, dubbed the Extension of Runway 11-29 project, includes the construction of the runway, a full parallel taxiway, runway and taxiway lighting, directional signage, Runway End Identifier Lights (REIL’s), and storm water improvements.

“At a cost of $12.2 million, this is the single largest project ever completed at the Flagler Executive Airport,” Director Roy Sieger explains. That cost was funded through $9.33 million from the Federal Aviation Association Administration, $2.72 million from the Florida Department of Transportation, and $128,934 from the Airport Enterprise Fund.

The Flagler County Executive Airport was originally constructed in 1942 and is located at 201 Airport Rd. in Palm Coast, off State Road 100, west of Interstate 95.
