I was reading a story about the WN overrun at MDW and was wondering about the law that was passed recently.
"Midway is among nearly 300 commercial airports in the U.S. that don't have adequate runway buffers. A recently passed federal law requires the airfields to extend runway barriers by 2015 or build the concrete beds."
What is going to happen in 2015 to airports like MDW? I mean they don't have room to add the needed overrun space.
And what are some other airports that don't have the space to add the new requirements?
