The South Alabama Regional Airport will expand its runway safety area from 100 to 250 feet following the completion of an ongoing expansion project scheduled to be finished next month. Grading, drainage, clearing, and erosion control will be among the improvements within the runway safety area (RSA) for Runways 11 and 29.“With safety always being our top priority, this has been a project that we’ve been wanting to do for nearly 10 years. Because other priorities arose, it’s been pushed behind. We’re grateful to be able to perform this project because in the event of an aircraft for any reason coming off the runway, the area will be object free and will hopefully eliminate any potential damage to an aircraft,” SARA Executive Director Jed Blackwell said.
