McClellan-Palomar Airport Runway Expansion

Airport improvements could boost economy –  CARLSBAD – An expansion of the McClellan-Palomar Airport runway in Carlsbad could generate millions in economic benefits to the region, according to wide-ranging study set to be approved next week by the county board of supervisors.

The 500-page feasibility study recommends extending the 4,897-foot runway by 900 feet, which would help airplanes using the airport make longer flights and help to reduce noise problems.
