Bethel airport resurfacing hits snag
On the Y-K Delta
Flights delays and diversions have been seen at Bethel Airport after resurfacing of the main runway saw delays, according to alaskadispatch.com. The delays began when the mix for the pavement material was found not to meet specifications. According to KYUK, there are delays in getting people, even those needing medical attention, to Anchorage, and getting goods into Bethel. A plan is underway by Alaska Department of Transportation to get the facility back up to normal capacity by the end of the month.
