Mt. Pleasant airport runway to close for 5 days

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) -- Several safety improvements mean the Mount Pleasant Regional Airport's runway will be shut down for nearly a week this month.

According to officials, the improvements are mandated by the Federal Aviation Administration.

The work is set to begin on Oct. 14, but could be delayed depending on weather.

Officials said the grassy shoulder of the runway would be graded and reseeded.
