"This is a project that has been in the works for many years and we are thrilled that it is finally happening," says Mayor Lester Miller. "This extension will provide so much opportunity for the growth at our airport and will make it more convenient for our current tenants."

The Commission unanimously approved accepting $2 million from the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) Highway Division to fund a portion of the construction of the runway extension.
"The runway extension is important for a variety of reasons, such as improving safety for large aircraft operations, allowing for larger aircraft to land and take off at MCN with full payloads," says Airport Manager Doug Faour. "It also makes the airport more attractive for commercial airline service to other destinations and increases air-service charter opportunities to other destinations."
The first phase of the project will be the construction of a retaining wall near the approach end of Runway 5, which is in the southwest corner of airport property near Sardis Church Road. The estimated cost for the first phase is approximately $2,000,000. The second phase of construction is the actual extension of the runway and the installation of an Engineered Materials Arresting System (EMAS). The extension should be completed in late 2024 or early 2025.
