Airport runway change order approved

December 16, 2008

The Washington County Commissioners voted Tuesday to approve a change order of about $140,000 for additional expenses related to a bridge over U.S. 11 that is part of a runway rehabilitation project at the Hagerstown Regional Airport.

Most of the additional expense came from high asphalt prices and improvements to a drainage ditch beside U.S. 11, according to a letter from Airport Director Carolyn S. Motz. The change order also covers wing wall extensions, message board rental charges and miscellaneous paving work, according to the letter.

The change order brought the total for that portion of the project from $18.13 million to $18.27 million. The overall runway project has about $3 million left in its budget and should end up below budget, airport officials said.

The commissioners voted 4-1 to approve the change order, with Commissioner William J. Wivell opposed.
