It's been twenty years since the two runways have been repaved and they need to do the work to be in compliance with the F.A.A.
Bob Noble is the Interim Director of the Redmond Airport.
"It's essentially old age. The time to replace the car. The existing facility is aged in terms of its surface, as well as it isn't meeting the F.A.A. standards. It needs to be reshaped in essence to meet them. When the project is done we will have full compliance."
The work wil be done over two summers --this sumemr and next summer.
During 2015, the airport will have to totally shut down for four days to repave the primary runway.
