McKellar-Sipes Regional Airport has begun a construction Project designed to
bring Alpha Taxiway up to current FAA specifications. The most important “fix”
will result in a 400’ separation between the center line of Runways 2/20 and
Alpha. This improvement should result in lower minimums on IFR approaches.
The construction period is 330 days with extra time for a winter shutdown period.
30 days of airport closure is built into this project.
Expect Charlie Taxiway to be closed for 30 days (August).
Expect Delta Taxiway to be closed 60 days (Aug/Sept).
Expect Alpha South to be closed 90 days (Aug-Dec).
Runway 11/29 will be closed daily, 2400Z (7 PM) until 1200 Z (7 AM)
Pilots can expect back-taxi on 2/20 with access to the west apron via Runway 11.
Runway 11 is currently lit with blue edge lights.
PLEASE: CHECK NOTAMS OFTEN BECAUSE THE SCHEDULE MAY CHANGE
