All demolition of old taxiway and drainage is complete for Phase #1. This is the part of Alpha south of Runway 11. This part of the project has Taxiways, Charlie & Delta closed.
All of the “New” Taxiway Alpha is to grade and most of the Phase # 3 drainage, south of 11 is complete.
The contractor has been placing stone on the new “Delta South” for two weeks and that is also 95% complete.
Expect construction company to begin placing surface mix in the next few days. Also there is a planned closure of 4 days of more to Runway 11/29 when asphalt work on Taxiway “Charlie tie in begins.
