Memo: Taxiway & RSA Grading Project
Today is day 92 of this project. The entire area south of Runway 11/29 has been brought to grade. The first lift of asphalt is complete from 11/29 south to the approach end of Runway 02 and Taxiway Alpha. Winter grass has been planted and edge lights for that portion of Taxiway Alpha will be complete in the next 4/5 weeks. The intersection of Taxiway Alpha & Charlie will be returned to service as soon as the asphalt work is complete which we anticipate will be within the next 10 days.
Grading of the Runway Safety Area on the east side of Runway 02 should begin sometime this week. Demo of Taxiway Alpha North of Runways 11/29 will begin sometime in November and work will continue on the north side throughout the winter months, weather permitting.
Runway 11/29 will open as soon as Charlie Taxiway is returned to service.
On another note, the AWOS (Automated Weather Observation Station) is under repair by The National Weather Service. We expect a return to service anytime within the next 10 days.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
