Airport board OKs project change orders

Daily Journal

TUPELO – The Tupelo Airport Authority approved two change orders in a special meeting to close out already completed work at the airport.

A 650-foot extension of the runway was completed earlier this year by Century Construction, which bid $5.2 million for the project. However, Century did submit two change orders, one for $267,000 last December, and another for $218,000 on Tuesday.

The original estimate for the extension project was $8.1 million.

A separate change order for ramp construction near Universal Asset Management also was approved on Tuesday, for about $17,000.
