Upgrades made to Harris County Airport

HARRIS COUNTY, GA (WTVM) - Big changes are coming to the Harris County Airport… changes that officials hope will attract more business.

Chamber president Linda Dawson said up to now they have resurfaced their 5,000 feet runway and upgraded lighting.

The airport hosted an open house Tuesday evening to showcase the improvements. Dawson said they also plan to move the taxiway and build additional hangars. Those projects are expected to be finished by the spring.

The extra space and longer runway means corporate jets can use the airport.
