Sussex County Airport has broken ground on a $4.46 million runway expansion that will extend the length of its main runway to 5,500 feet, opening the facility to larger aircraft. Scheduled for completion next summer, the improvement at the Georgetown airport is the first part of a process that will eventually extend the runway to 6,000 feet. The second stage, scheduled to take place during the next few years, will relocate a local road and cost approximately $20 million. The state has begun the necessary environmental studies required for the adjustment and will need to acquire additional acreage before the project can proceed. Pats Aircraft Systems, a specialist in Boeing Business Jet maintenance and modifications, is based on the field.
