Stead Ramp Construction for 2021 Begins Monday July 12th

On Monday, July 12, 2021 Granite Construction will be starting the next phase of Taxiway A/Ramp reconstruction.  This phase will last about 40 days and conclude before Air Races.  After Air Races we will do the work north of the fuel island to include that portion of Taxiway A.

The construction area is the section of ramp that is between the 4’ fence and the fuel island, in front of the Aviation Classics maintenance hangar and the Airport Terminal.  Additionally, the 4’ fence will be removed all the way to the Grandstands and there will be drainage improvements along that fenceline.

Attached is a graphic of the construction area that will be closed to aircraft and vehicles.

We are blocking parking spaces in front of the terminal and Aviation Classics right now to capture the space for construction.  Park at the base of the tower or on the landside of the terminal, please.  Barriers around the construction area will go up on Monday, July 12.

The self-serve fuel island will be open with access from the north (taxiway A) side only.  Aircraft may be towed to/from Aviation Classics from east.

All the vehicle parking along the 4’ fence in front of the terminal and Aviation Classics will be closed.  Vehicles may park at the base of the control tower or in the terminal landside parking lot.

No east-west vehicle, bike, board, pedestrian traffic will be allowed from the terminal to the Aviation Classics hangars along the 4’ fence.  Use Texas Avenue via the gate at the tower and the gate next to airport maintenance for east-west traffic.

Use caution driving between the gate at the tower and the grandstands.  Construction vehicles will be crossing in/out of the construction area, and there is a piece of construction that extends into that vehicle pathway.

As always, share this with your employees and friends.  Let me know your questions, and I will update you as things progress.
