'This will be an inconvenience to pilots, but the runway remains open'
Construction work currently under way at the Idaho County Airport will put completion to last year’s multi-million-dollar runway and taxiway reconstruction project. Fixed-wing pilots will still be able to use the facility, though a west end portion of the taxiway will be closed for this phase of work, set to last 10 days; and the east end will be closed for improvements tentatively starting Wednesday, Aug. 2, and last about a week. Taxiway work was broken into two phases so aircraft could still use the facility.
