Jefferson City airport reopens

The Jefferson City Airport is again open.

The airport reopened Wednesday afternoon after 51 days of being closed as the Missouri River rose to and remained above major flood stage.

Officials say the runway lights are out and the air traffic control tower is down so flights are limited to daytime hours.

At its height the floodwaters covered the airport and much of the property in north Jefferson City after overwhelming levees.
