Traffic and Parking is especially challenging.  Lots of mud, construction vehicles, and parking area closures are testing everyone. 

Please note the Barnstormer Restaurant WILL BE OPEN for business as usual.  Special pedestrian walk-ways will be established.  Please follow the directions given by numerous signs that are to be posted to guide you to/from the hangars and restaurant.

North Runway Rehabilitation (August 2017 - May 2018)

We are waiting on drier conditions so we may complete a final "spring" punch list of items for this project.  Preparing the runway edges and seeding is the big item left to complete. Minor ruts outside the safety areas and general clean-up of the staging areas is all that remains for project closeout.


Air Traffic Control Tower Life Safety Stairs

The life safety stairwell is complete and functional.  The only thing remaining is some exterior painting when weather permits.


​FAA Tech Ops Installing New Control Cabling to RTR

Placement of the remaining concrete structions connecting the direct bury and open trench conduits is to be determined.  We are awaiting some dryer ground conditions to allow placement of the connector vaults for the underground conduit. Once work begins again, about a week is expected for completion.
