The 7,200-Foot Runway Project Began In 2020 The Ponca City Regional Airport hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, July 9, in honor of the airport’s newly reconstructed 7,200-foot runway. The project, which began in 2020, was one of the largest single-phase undertakings at a general aviation airport in Oklahoma. The project reconstructed a majority of the runway, replaced the runway lights and guidance signs and significantly enhanced the drainage of the area. The FAA funding for the $8.1M project was directed through the Oklahoma Aeronautics Commission’s (OAC) 5-year Airport Construction Program and consisted of a combination of FAA Supplemental Appropriations, Airport Improvement Program (AIP) funding and Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act local matching funds.
