Cheyenne Regional Airport... worth every penny
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - If you’ve ever heard the statement ‘you get what you pay for.’
Then you’ll understand the lesson the leaders at the Cheyenne Regional Airport have learned over the last two years regarding the runway construction project.
According to higher-ups, the current construction team not only knows what they are doing, but they are ahead of schedule and worth every penny.
“This has been a rough project. We won’t have to do it again for another 50 years. So once this is done, we’re done, and we’ll be back to normal. And we encourage everyone to fly local, fly from home, and fly Cheyenne,” said Tim Bradshaw, Director of Aviation at the Cheyenne Regional Airport.
The local airport’s ongoing construction project is finally rounding the corner and headed toward the finish line. This multi-year project is finally in its last and final phase.
The F.A.A. and partners paid for this $64M project and are replacing 3,600 feet of runway.
Although the airport remains mostly operational, the regional airport will be fully open, with airline service returning on Sept.10th through United Airlines.
They will also add a passenger boarding bridge to the terminal and parking lot improvements, along with additional tenants in the airport, later this year.
Finally, in August, they will be holding a 5k on the runway in support of our service members.
“This will be a free event, so there won’t be any charge for it. We encourage people to come out and run or walk the runway. Bring your pet llama or your bearded dragon, whatever you want to do,” said Bradshaw.
The 5k event will happen in August and raise money for the RISE Foundation to help military vets.
The event will have food and music, open for the whole family to attend. We will update you with details of the event as they come in.
