Rexburg Given Cost to Move Airport
REXBURG, Idaho (AP) — It will cost $39 million to relocate the Rexburg-Madison County Airport in eastern Idaho.
That's what a consulting firm has told local officials who say a bigger airport is needed for economic development.
Officials say the 420-foot runway at the current airport can't be expanded because there's a river at the end of it.
Rexburg City Councilman Christopher Mann tells KIFI-TV (http://bit.ly/1vbiWgL) that studies are underway to consider options, including keeping the current airport.
