OCEAN CITY, MD improvements

OCEAN CITY -- Jaime Giandomenico said people have probably been driving past the Ocean City Municipal Airport and wondering just what the 20-foot-tall illuminated "X" is in the middle of its property.

"It's impossible to miss, but that's the way it's supposed to be," said Giandomenico, the airport's manager. The "X" has been erected to deter aircraft from using one of the airport's two runways while a rehabilitation and reconstruction project is completed.

"If you line up with the runway at night, you see it from miles out, so it's a good deterrent," he said.

The runway will have its surface milled, undergo repaving, get drainage and lighting upgrades, and also get new signage, according to Ocean City Public Works Director Hal Adkins. Perimeter fencing will be constructed as well, to prevent deer and other wildlife from getting on the runway, among other upgrades.
