Taxiway A Rehabilitation

About the Project

Taxiway A is the full length parallel taxiway to the west of Runway 16R/34L. Like the runway, Taxiway A was last rehabilitated in 1999 is in need of major pavement and electrical infrastructure rehabilitation. The pavement rehabilitation is anticipated to be a mill and overlay of the existing asphalt surface. Electrical improvements include removal of existing incandescent taxiway edge lighting and airfield guidance signage, and replacement with new LED edge lighting and signage.

The runway rehabilitation construction will address the connector taxiways between the runway and parallel taxiway and was completed in November 2020. The taxiway rehabilitation construction will address the mainline portion of the parallel taxiway and is anticipated to begin in spring 2023. Once complete, the majority of the infrastructure on the west side of the airfield will be fully rehabilitated, beginning with the West Apron in 2018, Runway 16R/34L in 2020, and parallel Taxiway A in 2023.
