The runway resurfacing project at Collin County Regional Airport in McKinney, Texas, is complete, and operations resumed there on November 30. The airport was closed for a month during the project, which added 12 inches of new concrete overlay on 7,001-foot Runway 17/35 and three inches of new asphalt on the taxiway to allow operation of heavier airplanes. Local officials and airport personnel celebrated the reopening of the airport on December 14 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
