Sioux City Airport work prompts temporary relocation of Air Guard
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — The 185th Air Refueling Wing is temporarily flying and maintaining unit refuelers at an air base in Kansas while the main runway at Sioux Gateway Airport is being rehabilitated.
The approximately $8.9 million runway project, which is fully funded by a federal grant through the Federal Aviation Administration, began last week in April. The track is not expected to reopen until mid-October. In the meantime, Deputy City Manager Mike Collett said commercial flights were using the secondary runway at the city-owned airport.
