The runway replacement is part of the 12/35 Runway Reconstruction Project.
Starting Thursday at 8 a.m. the airport will be closed until Sunday night. It is just one of three temporary closures that will take place over the next month.
The full closures are as followed:
- Thursday, August 15 from 8:00 a.m. through Sunday, August 18 at 8:00 p.m.
- Friday, August 23 from 8:00 a.m. through Sunday, August 25 at 8:00 p.m.
- Saturday, September 14 at 8:00 a.m. through Sunday, September 15 at 8:00 p.m.
Once the project is complete, there will be 5.400 feet of new runway to the south and 1,000 new feet for an extension of Runway 35 and Taxiway C to the south. There will also be a new connector taxiway.
