The Tillsonburg (Ontario, Canada) News is reporting that Tillsonburg Municipal Airport is expanding its runway to 5,500 feet. From the story:

“The extension is part of a multi-pronged investment in the airport. Other initiatives will see the construction of a new 1,800 square-foot terminal building, resurfacing of the existing runway and a feasibility study on establishing an airport industrial park and airpark. The majority of the money – 90% or $2.1 million – came from the federal Community Adjustment Fund.”
