Airport under construction

Special to the Enterprise
Construction has started on the Barnesville Brownfield Airport. The first phase of the project is to construct a new access road further away from the end of the runway and safety zone, according to Barnesville Village Administrator Roger Deal. The runway replacement will come as phase 2 of the FAA federally funded $2.5 million project. Shelley and Sands, Inc. has the contract for the project. This project has been planned and in the works for over 15 years.
