Watch Out for the Concrete Trucks !

If you have been taxiing out to east TWY A or doing pattern work on 8/26, you may have noticed airport staff working around 3 storm drain inlets in the infields along east TWY A.

We have been prepping those inlets to install concrete collars to reduce sediment collection in our east end drainage system.  As part of the ramp reconstruction we made some drainage improvements, but also discovered that the lines needed cleaning because of a fair bit of sediment accumulations in the pipes.

On Thursday, April 1, concrete trucks will be crossing TWY A at the east end of the airport to deliver concrete to the 3 locations.  Two locations are on either side of the TWY A-B intersection, and the third is just east of RWY 32 threshold.

We do not plan to close TWY A or any other surface.  Other than when vehicles are crossing TWY A there should not be any interference.  I’d ask you to use extra caution around the work areas.  We will be mindful of cleaning up any FOD on TWY A but there may be some lags in doing that.

Let me know if you have any questions.
