Construction of a private airstrip in Camas County for actor Bruce Willis has been suspended due to zoning issues.

The Idaho Mountain Express reports work on the 8,500-foot-long and 100-foot-wide airstrip was halted after the Camas County Planning and Zoning Administrator found the site is zoned for agricultural use -- and that the airstrip would have negative impacts on neighbor and wildlife.

Officials say the Camas County Planning and Zoning Commission is holding a public hearing on a new draft county zoning ordinance on Oct. 4, at which time they will discuss changing the zoning.

Willis' property manager Mike Grbic said in September the actor was building a dirt runway called Soldier Field Airport about ten miles east of Fairfield.

Grbic declined to comment on the zoning issue.
