Crews working around the clock at Rapid City Regional Airport (KRAP)

RAPID CITY, South Dakota -  Crews have been working around the clock at the Rapid City Regional Airport to keep runways clear and flights on time.

Crews have placed priority on cleaning up the runway and the taxiway. The real cleanup however, will begin once the snow passes over the region.

According to Rapid City Regional Airport Executive Director, Patrick Dame, the airport hosts both passenger flights and emergency services as well.

“Typically we work very hard to keep the airport itself open, keep the runway open for aircraft to be able to land whether it's landing for a medical evacuation airplane or an air carrier,” Dame says.

Dame also says that passengers wishing to know the status of their flights should check online instead of calling in. People wishing to know the status of their flights can check at

Those driving to and from the airport on Monday evening are also advised to use caution along Highway 44.
