Henry Co. Airport Needs Required Upgrades

Paris, TN – Landing at Henry County Airport will someday be a much smoother experience. Airport officials committed last week to a $1.75 million taxiway rebuilding project required by state aviation officials. The current taxiway is in poor repair and covered in cracks. It's also too close to the main runway for planes safely land via instrument approaches. The plan is for Henry County to pay about ten percent of the cost while the state picks up the rest. The Henry County Budget Committee will soon consider the request. The Paris Post Intelligencer reports if funding comes through by mid next year, construction could begin as soon as next winter.
