Airport runway upgrade announced

The first runway built at Detroit Metropolitan Airport is set for a major overhaul to replace the aging strip and ease take-offs, USA Today reports.

The estimated $240-million project is slated to begin in spring 2019 and wrap up by winter 2020.

Efforts are expected to take two construction seasons to complete, with Runway 3L/21R, which is near the McNamara and North terminals on the Romulus airport’s east side, being closed between spring and fall 2019.

The 8,500-square-foot-long runway was constructed in the 1950s.
