Entrance into the Marion Municipal Airport in Marion (Grant County) is fully accessible despite construction on Indiana State Road 9. Road improvements along an approximate 6-mile stretch of State Road 9 began this week, however motorists will have access into the airport.

Entrance into the Mar­i­on Munic­i­pal Air­port in Mar­i­on (Grant Coun­ty) is ful­ly acces­si­ble despite con­struc­tion on Indi­ana State Road 9. Road improve­ments along an approx­i­mate 6-mile stretch of State Road 9 began this week, how­ev­er motorists will have access into the airport.

Indi­ana Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion (INDOT) offi­cials say bar­ri­cades must be in place dur­ing the con­struc­tion win­dow, how­ev­er they’ve been posi­tioned for even bus­es and large trail­ers to pass through.

The 2nd annu­al Airstrip Attack is sched­uled to take place this week­end (Aug. 19th & 20th), and the annu­al Fly/​In Cruise/​In is set to occur two weeks lat­er (Sept. 2nd). City and air­port offi­cials say motorists need not wor­ry about gain­ing access into the air­port dur­ing this con­struc­tion peri­od, espe­cial­ly for the two large events com­ing up.

Attached is a help­ful map with rec­om­mend­ed trav­el instruc­tions and key loca­tion points. The map was cre­at­ed for the Airstrip Attack occur­ring this week­end, but access into the air­port is also per­mit­ted for the upcom­ing Fly/​In Cruise/​In, as well as for gen­er­al use.
