The temporary delay of the Vernal Regional Airport runway project has come to an end. According to Uintah Transportation Special Service District Board Chairman Duane Shepherd, the Transportation District received the letter from the FAA on Friday giving the ‘okay’ to proceed with the project. “Crews can get right back to work and should be back on the project on Monday,” shares Shepherd. Construction on the runway project was halted while the FAA performed a review of environmental requirements to ensure that wetlands affected by the project were being handled properly. The project requires that wetlands be expanded upon in the Jensen area to cover about 7 acres to make up for wetlands acreage affected by the runway project.
