EUGENE, Ore. -- On the 26th day of the partial government shutdown, the Eugene Airport continued to run as normal.

Airport service manager Andrew Martz said so far they haven’t seen any effects from the federal government shutdown.

“We’re really lucky," Martz said. "Everyone has been showing up, and TSA’s been here, and air traffic control.”

The Portland International Airport also has not had any visible impact, according to KGW.
