Clear for take-off, remodeled runway open at Salisbury Airport

Remodeled runway open at Salisbury Airport

SALISBURY, Md. - Ribbons were cut Saturday at the Salisbury-Ocean City Wicomico Regional Airport for the newly renovated runway.

The runway was built in 1943 and this year received a complete rebuild.

The project commenced in March of this year, taking less than nine months to complete.

County councilman John Hall says this type of attention to infrastructure is what the county needs.

"We need to continue to grow with those type of resources and at the same time encourage businesses to come in here and bring your corporate jets in here and keep the economy strong by having those people come in here," Hall said. "We need to fly in and out of this airport and you can reach almost any where in the world from this airport."

Officials say that the runway also received new signs and new lights that are up to the Federal Aviation Administration standards.
