CLEVELAND (AP) Cleveland’s general aviation airport is getting a runway makeover.

The $20 million project at Burke Lakefront Airport at the edge of downtown Cleveland includes installation of a 400-ft. (122 m) stretch of “collapsible concrete.” That will slow down or stop an aircraft that’s unable to brake on its own.

Navigation equipment will be improved and a new taxiway will be built.

The cost will be shared by the Federal Aviation Administration and the Cleveland Airport System. An airport spokeswoman said the project is on schedule to be completed in three months.

The other city-owned airport, Cleveland Hopkins International, had a similar “collapsible concrete” runway safety feature installed in 2011.
