AIRPORT OPEN TO AIR TRAFFIC HOURS AFTER REPAIR

Yeager Airport in Charleston, West Virginia, is refurbishing its 6,300-ft concrete main runway with a new cement that allows jets to roll over fresh pavement just several hours after the concrete is placed. Nearly 250 cu yd of cement concrete made with Pyrament (registered trademark - Lone Star Industries, Inc., Greenwich, Connecticut), covering more than 1,100 sq yd of surface, are being placed on the runway during nighttime construction. There have been no construction-related air traffic delays.
