Woodland Airport Upgrade

Posted on 24th February 2014 at 16:39

The Woodland Airport is one of five state airports that is going to get a new Airport Layout Plan from the State of Washington. The Department of Transportation says that the Woodland Airport will get this improvement within the next two years, as will the Lower Granite, Stehekin, Easton and Sullivan Lake airports. These are listed as the first steps in making five-year, 10-year and 20-year improvement plans at each of these airports. WashDOT will be working with a consultant to inventory each airport, and will describe deficiencies and needs. They will then recommend site-specific capital projects that will bring each airport into compliance with federal standards and state performance objectives. The Washington Aviation Department worked with the National Guard to identify these five airports for study and improvement, as facilities for emergency management staging purposes. The State of Washington manages 16 airports across the state.
