The Madison County Journal reported the Madison County Board of Supervisors received a study recommending three sites for a new airport. The Journal published these posts on its Facebook page yesterday:
Top three new sites range in total cost from $43 million to $62 million. To expand Madison Airport, cost would be $97.9 million, engineers say.
To expand Bruce Campbell Airport in Madison, officials said it would affect 400 residents in two neighboring subdivisions.
Top site for airport is situated between Highway 43 and the Ross Barnett Reservoir.
MCEDA is presenting Project Phoenix, a study on a future county airport, before the Board of Supervisors.
