Rapid City Regional Airport Reopened New Year’s Day Following Shutdown
RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — The Rapid City Regional Airport reopened Tuesday, a day after severe winter weather caused a shut down.
The airport closed its main commercial runway, 14-32, on December 31st, when heavy snowfall and gusty winds created blizzard-like conditions.
On the airports’ Facebook page, a post from Tuesday morning stated that employees had worked through the night to clean up the snow that had caused Monday’s closure. The airport reopened about 4 a.m.
