$16 million airport opens in southwestern North Dakota

BOWMAN, N.D. — A $16 million airport has opened in southwestern North Dakota’s Bowman County.

Lt. Gov. Drew Wrigley says the Bowman County Municipal Airport 4 miles east of the town of Bowman spans 400 acres and has a 5,700-foot runway — the longest small general aviation runway in the state.

Wrigley says the opening of the airport will help address the impacts of rapid growth in the oil patch region.

Funding came from a variety of local, state and federal sources, including more than $2.9 million in state Energy Impact grants.
