Victoria Airport Commission vote to close one of three runways

The Victoria Regional Airport Commission voted unanimously to close down one of three available runways due to safety concerns.

The commission elected to permanently close the runway because of a collapse of an underground drainage channel. Officials say the airport considered alternative solutions for the damaged runway but decided it was not financially feasible to keep the runway open. The runway will remain closed while officials work with the FAA to decide their next move.
