Runway 8-26 Closures

Operational conditions permitting, we are planning to close Runway 8/26 daily, from Monday, August 7 thru Friday, August 11 between 4:45 am and noon for pavement maintenance.

We will have staff and equipment on the runway from 5:00 am – a bit after 10:00 am applying surface treatments that will take time to set. That’s why we are keeping the runway closed for a bit after the material applications. We are trying to do this in the earlier morning to take advantage of the cooler temps both for the staff and the materials.

Runway 14/32 will be available with no restrictions. This should not restrict access for the Guard C-12, although some extra caution may be needed when we are working in the area near TWY D. If we can complete our work early, we will reopen the Runway 8/26 as soon as possible each day.

We will issue a more complete tenant bulletin on Sunday with updated details. Staff appreciates your flexibility giving us this opportunity to keep our aircraft surfaces in good condition.

Please share this with others who may not be on our Stead distro, particularly with your local flight instructors who may be planning to use Stead next week.
