Flagstaff airport project on hold

Posted: Updated:

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- The partial shutdown of the Federal Aviation Administration has delayed a major construction project at the Flagstaff airport.

The city wanted to repave the taxiway, make drainage improvements and upgrade airfield lighting.

Money for the $4 million project would have come from the FAA, but the agency doesn't have the funds now so the project is on hold until at least next year.
