Runway Groundbreaking @ FLL

9R27L = 10,000 JOBS

9R27L is the name of the South Runway project that will create more than 10,000 jobs at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, and this morning was the official groundbreaking ceremony for $791 million in construction that extends concrete 8,000 feet.

The project will be completed in 2014 and was solidly backed by the Chamber and the entire business community.  On hand today were many local, state and federal leaders.  They are all to be commended for their ability to get this project off the ground.  In particular, Terry Stiles, CEO of Stiles, Corporation, led the business community charge along with former Chamber president, Christopher Pollock.

US Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood used this opportunity to ask Congress to pass the reauthorization of funding for both the FAA and the omnibus Transportation bill.  The former is two weeks away from expiration which means furloughs, unemployment and transportation chaos.  Both need to be approved and all can take credit for stimulating the economy.
