The Government of Saskatchewan announced funding for 11 airports in the province through the Community Airport Partnership program.
Weyburn’s airport will receive $97,500 for taxiway repairs, crack sealing, and pavement markings, and Carlyle’s airport is getting $9,090 for crack filling the runway and tarmac.
"The City of Weyburn is grateful for this investment which allows for improvements to our airport's taxiway pavement and markings," said Weyburn Mayor Marcel Roy. "With these enhancements, Weyburn can continue to provide high-quality service for those travelling to our province and the nation."
The other airports included in this $935,000 investment are Estevan, Big River, Kindersley, La Ronge, Melfort, Yorkton, the RM of Browning, the RM of Eldon, and the RM of Moosomin. When combined with local matching dollars, this represents nearly a $2 million investment in airport infrastructure.
