Warwick Mayor Vows To Fight Runway Expansion

Threatens Court Battle

Oh, no. Here we go again. Another small-town mayor is getting himself into a boxing match with airport officials.

Warwick (RI) Mayor Scott Avedisian said he would go to court if necessary to fight attempts to build longer runways at the T.F. Green Airport. Avedisian let the state know that he would seek legal action if becomes necessary.

In March, Gov. Don Carcieri appointed James Rosati as chairman of the Airport Corp. Rosati suspended work on the airport's master plan and reinstated runway expansion scenarios that had been rejected.

Avedisian said building a 9,500-foot runway would fully disrupt surrounding roadways.
A spokeswoman for the Airport Corp. rejected Avedisian's perception that Rosati is determined to launch a new round of airport expansion no matter what the cost.

The existing main runway at T.F. Green measures just under 7,200 feet.
