This project involves replacing the runway edge lights and airfield guidance signs. The current edge lights were installed in 1985 and are becoming obsolete. The electrical improvements will replace the current edge lights with an LED system that will reduce the electrical power usage as well as provide a brighter environment. Replacing the current non-illuminated airfield guidance signs is required by the FAA.
Project Manager: Ken Eichstaedt – Senior Civil Engineer
No surface vehicle traffic will be impacted by this project. However, during the installation of the new lighting system the airport hours for aviation vehicles will be modified.
The project begins March 1st for night-time construction and is expected to be completed in June 2020 with 75 working days of construction.
This project is funded primarily through a FAA grant with match funding through a combination of State grant and Airport Operating Funds
