If you have gone out to the airport in the last few days, you may have discovered that the parking lot is largely blocked off. Airport officials say that this is being done in advance of a sealcoating project that is set to take place next week. Specifically, most of the public parking spaces – except for rows 16 through 22 –– will be treated between May 7th and 15th, and the barricades are in place so that the rows to be treated are vacated in time for the project. The parking lot project was started last fall, but was interrupted by weather and scheduling conflicts as the project is temperature sensitive. Airport officials encourage those connecting with flights to seek an alternative to driving to the airport and wishing to park there while away. The sealcoating project is a Wyoming Aeronautics Group Maintenance Pavement Plan, paid for by the state.
