Summary:

This project consists of the construction of the Airport Runway 18-36 and Runway 4 extension.  This project includes asphalt pavement milling; pavement reconstruction; grading and drainage; subbase and base installation; pavement marking; airfield electrical; and procurement and installation of runway/taxiway closure devices.  As part of this project, the secondary runway, Runway 4-22, will be extended by 100 feet to accommodate air carrier traffic while Runway 18-36 is being rehabilitated.  Work is expected to be completed within 448 consecutive calendar days.

 

Background Information:

The Airports primary runway, Runway 18-36, is in need of rehabilitation due to pavement distresses; such as, longitudinal cracking, raveling, and weathering. The Airport has performed several emergency repairs over the past several years to maintain operational service of this primary runway, but a comprehensive pavement rehabilitation is needed. This project will repair and reconstruct the primary runway, as well as, provide a new widened asphalt shoulder and includes a complete replacement of all in-pavement edge lights.
