Lafayette, La. (KADN) — Hundreds of small holes, some about the size of a quarter, have been spotted all across the main runway at Lafayette Regional Airport just seven months after a $6 million dollar resurfacing project. Airport officials say that the small holes are not an immediate threat to plane or passenger safety, but the problem does need to be addressed quickly. If the runway cannot be repaired airport officials would definitely consider redoing the entire runway.
The Lafayette Regional Airport Commission meets tomorrow evening with airport administrators and engineers who will put forward a recommendation to fix the runway. From there the commission will vote on which actions need to be taken to ensure runway safety.
With the amount of air traffic and continued growth of Lafayette Regional Airport officials will have to act quickly on what could potential be a serious problem.
