Shelby (EHO) Runway Closure – Update

I would like to update everyone on the Runway Overlay Project at the airport. The  paving began Sunday, looks great, but was short lived due to the rainy weather. There were three days of paving accomplished with 6 more days remaining. Paving will resume Saturday. If everything goes well with no complications or rain delays, paving should be completed around Thursday, August 9. The schedule allows for 5 days of shoulder work, grassing and temporary painting. That will take us to Tuesday, August 14 given work is done on the weekend of August 11 and 12. This would put us in a position to open the runway around Wednesday, August 15 to Saturday, August 18. This is just a projection but I wanted to keep you up to date while giving an estimated time it will take to complete the project. Thank you all for your patience on this very important improvement.
