SkyWest flights in and out of Cheyenne will be grounded this spring and summer as the airport moves into phase III of its runway rehabilitation project.

"This year’s renovations will include the final phase of replacing approximately 3600 feet of the runway’s pavement," Director of Aviation Tim Bradshaw said in a press release.

Bradshaw says the work will begin on Wednesday, April 5, and take approximately 160 days depending on weather and other construction contingencies.

"We appreciate the community’s patience and understanding as we move into this next phase of the project," said Bradshaw.

"We look forward to completing the construction and welcoming back scheduled airline service on or about September 10," he added.

Bradshaw says passengers who have already purchased tickets during this time are encouraged to call United Airlines at 800-864-8331 to rebook their travel.

He says the airport will remain open to general aviation and military operations who are able to use the secondary runway.
