  • The runway at Gettysburg Regional Airport has reopened following a two-month reconstruction project.

    The airport, in Cumberland Township, Adams County, is a general aviation facility which handles about 10,000 operations per year, according to its website.

    It is owned and operated by the Susquehanna Area Regional Airport Authority (SARAA) which also owns and operates Harrisburg International Airport, Capital City Airport, and Franklin County Airport.

    The runway is 3,100 feet long and 60 feet wide.

    SARAA officials said the work included removal of part of the existing runway to replace it with new pavement, including 24-inches of depth of crushed aggregate and four inches of asphalt pavement at the eastern end. This work tackled cracking resulting from frost heave.

    Next year, officials plan to reconstruct the western half.
