Executive Hangar Phase 2 area 1 is complete. Hangars A-D are accessible by aircraft. We haven’t received a start date on the next section.
Both projects are progressing, but due to the rain we are not being given completion dates. As soon as the contractors and engineers have any information on completion we will pass it on. Thank you for your patience.
Jones Brothers has advised us they plan on paving on Saturday (1/5) and Sunday (1/6) in that area.
We have just received an update on the construction project in that area with a new estimated completion date of Friday, January 4, 2013. Jones Brothers had an equipment issue at the plant that produces their asphalt. They are attempting to remedy the issue as soon as possible. We will keep you advised of any changes or updates when we receive them.
