Mid-Coast Airport Expansion (Fort Stewart-Hinesville, GA)

Recently (September 17, 2018), Fort Stewart military leaders and Hinesville (GA) community leaders gathered for the formal opening of an additional 1,500 feet extension to the Mid-Coast Airport runway.

This additional space, an $11-million construction project, will now allow for use by much larger military cargo planes, and larger commercial ones as well, making it a big win for both the Army and the surrounding community.  This will not only allow, for the first time, deploying tanks and other heavy military equipment from Mid-Coast, but it will also very likely be additional incentive for corporations to expand in, or relocate to, the Greater Hinesville area.  This expansion represents the best of the public-private partnership concept, where both partners truly do win.
