Taxiway C Work Will Impact Runway/Taxiway Use

Due to weather impacts and the onset of colder weather, the last stages of paving Taxiway C will impact airport operations.

Runway 8-26 will be NOTAM’ed closed Thursday-Saturday, 0800-1700 LCL.  Taxiway B will be closed from B1 to B3 for the same time periods.  The B closure will require back taxi on the runway between B1 and B3, so communication will be very important.

If winds become too strong for 14-32, we will look at opening 8-26, and use other traffic control mechanisms to get the asphalt trucks to the paver via A2 and crossing 8-26.  During either scenario, paving trucks will access the airport by the maintenance shop, transit the BLM ramp and the main ramp, and hold short of A to cross A and A2 to Charlie.  If 8-26 is open, crossing the runway will be controlled by airport staff.

Thanks for your support and cooperation to get the project wrapped up before we run out of paving weather.

Please call the office if you have questions about these procedures.
