Almost $10 million in contracts to improve the runways at Crescent City’s airport was awarded last week, but while the California Coastal Commission, whose approval was needed for the project, visited Del Norte County this week, eyes were on the contentious wetlands miles north of the airfield.

The federally-mandated Runway Safety Area project at Del Norte County Regional Airport will destroy wetlands, including “environmentally sensitive habitat areas,” prompting the Coastal Commission to require the airport’s governing agency to create wetlands in the Lake Earl and Tolowa Dunes area.
