Project Description

This project includes the rehabilitation and extension of runway 4L-22R. The existing asphalt runway was milled six inches deep and topped with a two-inch asphalt leveling course. The runway was then overlaid with 18 inches of Portland Cement Concrete Pavement (228,000 cubic yards). The runway was widened by 50 feet and extended by 700 feet. The finished product was a 12,700-foot long by 200-foot wide new runway with 40-foot wide shoulders that handles about 25 percent of the annual operations of the airport.
