Work on runway expected to start this month

Runway reconstruction at Marshfield Airport is expected to begin this month after a 12-year planning process, now that a Federal Aviation Administration grant of $11.3 million has been approved to fund the bulk of the work.

The entire runway will be moved about 190 feet southwest to reduce its effect on the adjacent Bass Creek wetland, airport manager David Dinneen said. The new runway will be 300 feet longer than the existing one, and will be widened to 100 feet from 75.
