Officials in Conway are moving toward building a new airport south of the city to better corporate jets. An industrial park would be nearby. An environmental impact study is complete, and the Conway Development Corporation has purchased about seven-hundred acres in the Lottie Bottoms area. The current airport in the city has a 4,800 foot runway and the surrounding area has little room for expansion. The proposal for a new airport calls for a first phase that will cost between ten and twelve million dollars. It would have a 5,500 foot runway that could be extended to seven-thousand feet. There is some opposition from the current airport`s operators. Manager Bill Cope says the new site is too close to the Arkansas River, which will cause problems with fog. He says it would be cheaper to expand the existing airport.
