Grooving of Runway 5-23 began the first week of July at the approach end of Runway 5. As the crew works their way to the northeast, there will be temporarily closures of taxiway crossing routes and Runway 13-31 as they proceed through the intersection. The schedule is as follows:
- Runway 5-23 crossing between A-3 and C-2 will be closed Friday, July 7 at 2000 local until Saturday, July 8 at 0800.
- Runway 5-23 crossing on Taxiway E between A and C will be closed Saturday, July 8 at 2000 until Sunday, July 9 at 0800.
- Runway 13-31 will be closed Sunday, July 9 at 2100 until Monday, July 10 at 0700.
Construction crews have nearly completed the paving of Runway 5-23. Electrical work continues which includes installation of the new LED edge lights, PAPIs, and REILs. Application of the temporary airfield markings is nearing completion.
Taxiway E remains open in its entirety and Taxiway A is now open between Runway 13-31 and Taxiway A-3.
Taxiway C remains closed between Taxiway B and Taxiway C-6 (approach end of Runway 23).
Taxiway B remains closed between Taxiway C and the Foxtrot Hangars and Taxiway A remains closed between Runway 13-31 and Taxiway A-6 (approach end of Runway 23). Please click on the link below for a diagram of current runway and taxiway closures.
Construction Update July 22, 2017:
The heavy afternoon rains have finally had an effect on our construction schedule. As a result, the opening of Runway 5-23 has tentatively been pushed back to Tuesday, August 1 at 1000.
Please be advised the new PAPIs on 5-23 are not expected to be commissioned until mid-October. Additionally, the ILS is expected to remain out of service until about the same time.
Runway 13-31 will close in late August to allow for the continued construction of Taxiway C. A separate notice regarding this closure will be sent once a firm date is established.
Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation.
