New safety features have been installed at Lafayette Regional Airport

The Federal Aviation Administration wanted runways expanded, but there’s no adjacent land available.

The FAA instead allowed beds of crushable concrete to be installed at each end of the runway. If an aircraft should overshoot the runway or  run off of it, the concrete bed will aid in slowing the plane down.

State Transportation Secretary Sherri LeBas says the state provided $435,000 in funding for the $8.7 million project, and the federal government provided the remainder.
