Airport Receives Funds For Summer Projects


By Joey Martin

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Monday the Twin Falls City Council approved an agreement to start to process of the design, bidding, and construction of two projects out at Magic Valley regional Airport.

The Two projects are basically maintenance issues that need to be addressed.

The first would be to seal–coat the entire runway along with the taxiways and the loading and un–loading areas.

The second would be some ramp reconstruction along and periodic pavement patchwork and painting on parts of the taxi-ways.

“Total project cost for both projects is about $3,225,000.000. We have about a million and a half dollars of our normally scheduled grant money. And the City and County, the folks match that at 6%. So that’s about 6 cents on the dollar that we match locally on that. So… it’s a very critical revenue stream from us to get work done.” Said Airport Manager, Bill Carberry.

With that 6% match, the city approved a $616,000.00 agreement to have Riedelse Engineering being that planning process.

Bidding on both projects should begin in the spring time with construction getting underway this summer.
