Minor runway obstructions, major public cost

Thirteen light poles and an overhead sign on Interstate 95 are among the minor obstructions in the clear zone for the new airport runway. They must come down.

Cost in public funds: $907,185.

For example, a concrete barrier wall will be removed for $8,906. A new one will be constructed for $42,084.

The runway at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport is scheduled to open in a year. The obstructions are scheduled for removal by Feb. 1.
