Airport considers runway length and strength

Plans for Truckee Tahoe Airport’s runways could impact local air traffic and noise ” but exactly how is still being explored.

As needed maintenance and repair work for the airport’s runways approach, the airport district’s board of directors is considering saving money by either reducing runway length, reducing load-bearing capacity, or both.

Whether or not such measures would reduce air traffic or noise is still an unanswered question, said Mike Scott, assistant general manager for the airport district.
