Businesses at Cape airport to stay open
The Landing Place restaurant and other businesses at the Cape Girardeau Regional Airport including two car rental firms will remain open while the runways are closed to air traffic later this fall because of construction work, airport manager Bruce Loy said.
The airport terminal will also remain open. The runways will be closed to commuter and general aviation traffic from 8 p.m. on Oct. 31 to 5 a.m. on Nov. 10. But Arch Air Medical Service, based at the airport, will continue to fly its ambulance helicopter and respond to medical emergencies, Loy said.
The airport's two runways will be closed for 10 days to allow a contractor to make improvements to the intersection of the two runways and construction of a new taxiway and earth work at both ends of the main runway.
