Cost to move E. Idaho airport put at $39 million
REXBURG, Idaho — It will cost $39 million to relocate the Rexburg-Madison County Airport in eastern Idaho.
That’s what a consulting firm has told local officials who say a bigger airport is needed for economic development.
Officials say the 420-foot runway at the current airport can’t be expanded because there’s a river at the end of it.
Rexburg City Councilman Christopher Mann tells KIFI-TV that studies are underway to consider options, including keeping the current airport.
