STOCKTON, Kan. (AP) A new, regional airport with a 5,000-foot runway is set to open next month in northwestern Kansas.
The Hays Daily News reports that paving on the runway of Rooks County Regional Airport has been completed, and the opening is scheduled for April 5.
Not all amenities will be available at that time. Rooks County officials say a parking lot and taxiway will be added, and construction of a hangar is also planned.
Once more work is done, officials plan to have a grand opening, possibly in the summer.
