EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

A dedication ceremony is held to mark the completion of Evansville Regional Airport's runway expansion.

The two runways at the airport no longer intersect, per FAA safety standards.

The runway is also now farther away from Highway 41 and St. George Road.

Construction on the runway began in March 2014. Airport officials say the runway should be open as early as next week.
