LaBelle Airport Construction Delayed

Aerial Photo of LaBelle Municipal Airport - Now under construction to extend and widen the runway, the project at last announced projection, was expected to be completed by May 13. The contractor, Better Roads Inc., a Highlands county company, has announced numerous delays since the beginning of the multi-million dollar project. Now with excavation and grading still underway on the mile long runway and adjoining parking ramp areas, there appears to be no end in sight, although the construction manager has unofficially guessed a couple of more weeks to complete enough of the runway to allow aircraft to land at LaBelle.
