The recent shutdown of the Federal Aviation Administration has had some negative effects on the Indianapolis International Airport. Several projects planned for the airport have been put on hold or delayed until next year because of the shutdown.
Airport CFO Marsha Stone said the construction of a new storage facility for the airport‘s de-icing materials has been delayed, and the airport is waiting for approval from the FAA to begin allowing new 747-800 cargo planes. Stone said the shutdown has also affected administrative issues: The Indy Airport is currently waiting for approvals from the FAA for a land release for a new solar farm on the property.
