Replacement Airport: Past Studies
1990 Airport Feasibility Study - Phase I, II, III
The purpose of this study was primarily to identify and compare the improvements necessary to modify the current airport site's deviations to FAA Standards versus construction of a new airport at a different location in the Wood River Region. The final site choise was located in western Blaine County near the Camas County line, north of Camas Creek, and east of Moonstone Mountain.
The residents of Blaine County and the Blaine County Airport Commissioners (the Authority at the time) were the final authority on deciding the action to take preceding this study. They concluded that staying with the current airport site was the best decision at the time.
