New improvements planned at WillCo airport

The Williams County Regional Airport is planning changes that will bring the hub into compliance with FAA regulations and improve the safety of the airport at a price tag of $1.5 million.
The plan is to move the existing taxiway back about 240 feet from the runway and extend the taxiway westward about 1,700 feet, according to the Bryan Times. The extension will bring the taxiway all the way to the western end of the runway near County Road 16. Right now, the taxiway, which is used by planes to line up for take off, is less than the FAA-mandated distance away from the runway. The safety improvement will come from giving planes more room instead of forcing them to taxi onto the runway.
