Beginning later this year or in early 2012, Charleston Air Force Base's main runway will be rebuilt at a tune of $50 million.

The runway shares the landing strip with Charleston International Airport, so this news is of interest to both military and civilian alike.

The makeover is estimated to take nine months.

While construction is taking place, all commercial and Air Force flights will be redirected to the secondary runway, which underwent its own re-vamping in 2009-10.
