Runway Construction Update – September 4, 2018

SEPTEMBER 4, 2018

STEAD AIRPORT TENANT BULLETIN

RUNWAY 8/26 TEMPORARILY OPEN, DAY USE ONLY     

 

We reached a major construction project milestone in the re-build of Runway 8/26. Happy to let you know that we have been able to temporarily open the runway for Air Races, on schedule. I think the surface is pretty nice, but will like to hear what you think.

Runway 8/26 is temporarily open from September 4 – September 17, 2018 for the Reno Air Races. Runway 8/26 and Taxiway A are currently un-lighted due to continuing construction, so RWY 8/26 is DAY USE ONLY.

The following NOTAMs have been posted regarding the use of RWY 8/26:

We will be closing the runway after Air Races to finish painting, surface treatments and electrical work.

Please let me know immediately if you see an issue on or along the runway. Exercise extra caution because the we have not been on this runway for a while, and please be mindful of the end of civil twilight in the evenings.

Share this as needed, please.
