The Jamestown Regional Airport Authority approved having Interstate Engineering design a rehabilitation project for the crosswind runway at Jamestown Regional Airport.
The Airport Authority also approved having Interstate Engineering do the engineering work for sealing cracks the airport’s runways where needed.
Steve Aldinger, an engineer with Interstate Engineering, said the firm could do the design work for the crosswind runway rehabilitation project for $99,000. Since the crosswind runway rehabilitation project is federally funded, if Interstate Engineering charges more than $100,000 for designing the project, the bid would have to be reviewed by a peer engineering firm. Aldinger said he lowered Interstate Engineering’s fee to avoid that review, but if the Airport Authority wanted the bid reviewed by a peer engineering firm, it could.
