Runway 14/32 Decommissioning
On October 5, 2015, OSU Airport will see the end of an era with the decommissioning of Runway 14/32. This was one of the original runways constructed with the opening of the airport back in 1943. Due to a number of factors, it was decided to permanently close the runway.
Determining factors included: ongoing funding for maintenance, a degrading lighting system, annual number of operations on the runway, geometry of the runway, and recommendation of the RSAT (Runway Safety Action Team) members at the spring meeting.
