The Keokuk City Council is proceeding with a multi-million dollar infrastructure project.
The Keokuk Municipal airport has two runways. The length of one is 5,500 feet while the other is 3,800 feet.
The city is looking to resurface the longer runway as early as this summer.
Airport Manager Greg Gobble says the work would be done in shifts to allow the airport to remain open.
The Federal Aviation Administration must review the plans because the height of the runway increasing by 6” could impact the agency’s equipment.
