The project includes the reconstruction and shifting of an existing 5000 foot runway and associated lighting system and navigational aids along with reconstruction of associated taxiway connections. Inclusive of the runway improvements were grading improvements along runway shoulders and runway ends. Storm drainage improvements included removal and replacement of several storm drainage lines that cross below the existing runway. At these locations, full depth replacement of existing pavements is required.
