Safety Improvements for HLRA

The Hattiesburg-Laurel Regional Airport Authority recently retained the professional engineering services of Shows, Dearman & Waits to address safety issues relating to the Runway Safety Area (RSA) on each end of the 6,500 foot asphalt runway. 

Safety improvements include a new emergency access road.

SDW developed a plan to relocate an emergency access road outside the RSA.  Walker Construction from Wiggins was awarded the $1.1 million contract and is expected to complete the project ahead of schedule.
