The Stafford Regional Airport will hold a groundbreaking for the extension of its runway on Monday, January 18, 2021, at 11 a.m.
The groundbreaking takes place at the airport located at 95 Aviation Way. Members of the Board of Supervisors are invited and may attend. The groundbreaking is not open to the public due to the coronavirus, a county spokeswoman tells PLN.
The existing 5,000-foot runway will be extended 1,000 feet. This project has been in the works since 2007, and the Stafford Regional Airport Authority (SRAA) opened bids for a contract on June 9. The winning bidder was Fredericksburg based Henderson Construction Company, which made a bid of just over $3.4 million for the project.
