MARYVILLE, Mo. (AP) - Nearly $3.4 million in renovations are getting ready to begin at the Northwest Missouri Regional Airport.

The work will include replacement of most of the Maryville landing field’s 4,600-foot-long concrete runway. Plans also call for redoing the northernmost of two connecting taxiways.

The Maryville Daily Forum (https://bit.ly/23HAK1i) reports that construction is expected to begin around the end of May and continue for about four months. During the work, the facility will be closed to aircraft.

Pavement ruptures during hot weather have become an increasingly common problem at the airport, which has closed several times in recent years for emergency repairs.

More than 90 percent of the funding will come from a federal grant. The city will use a special Missouri Department of Transportation loan to cover its $338,800 local match.
