The automotive industry in the United States of America is on a roll as Dyersburg has planned to achieve another milestone. Recently, Mayor John Holden, along with some other members, discussed the 20-year plan for repairing the existing runway and constructing new areas at the airport. The meeting started with the reappointment of Alderman Dennis Moody, in the Airport Committee as the chairman. Alderman Bob Kirk stated that the main motto behind the meeting is to discuss about the airport layout plan which is ready and has been submitted to the state for approval. 

As more damages were found at the runway of the airport, a repair plan was outlined at first. As per Hudgings, Dyersburg Regional is amongst the airports in West Dyersburg, Tennessee, that is featured with a crosswind runway. The 20-year long plan includes repair plans like removal of trees that come in the way of the runway, extension of the parking area of the terminal, rehabilitation of the ramp, installation of new hangers, fencing and some other modifications. 

As per the calculations done by airport manager Tommy Gibbons, the renovation and new construction plan would cost around $4,638,663, if the entire plan is actually implemented in coming 20 years. Gibbons said that the work related to hangar is complete and a $5 million runway can be planned. But the priority will be given to parking place for the planes. Engineering and architectural company is supposed to suggest all required changes so as to successfully complete the plan.   

The 20-year plan, as defined for construction and renovation of the airport at Dyersburg, Tennessee, will require implementation of latest technology and innovative ideas from the engineering and architectural team. The meeting for discussing the airport construction plan was also attended by two representatives from Barge Waggoner Sumner and Cannon Inc., Charlie Goforth & Randall Hudgings. The engineering and architectural firm will be finalizing the suggested changes for the airport layout plan and getting them approved with the committee.
