pip bips infrastructure post made me think of the big issue going on in my state. mainly that the second biggest airport in the state is closing up shop for 4 months while they tear out the runway, excavate 18 million cubic feet of Earth (5400 feet by 200 feet by 17 feet) and put in a new one. that wouldn’t be too unusual expect the airport has been open only 8 years. ouch. 24 million. The runway is wavey and rippled because of soil expansion. i flew into this airport a few months ago. i recall the bumpy ride but mostly remember the hilariously steep approach.
At least the flight in is spectacular.
