Project Summary

The construction for the extension of Runway 6-24 and Taxiway Alpha was a culmination of years of planning and environmental permitting. Hoyle, Tanner provided continual assistance to the City through the land acquisition process and the NEPA Environmental Assessment preparation necessary to complete the Runway extension. Hoyle Tanner’s final runway design included a 1,401’ extension of the primary Runway 6 end; removal of a non-standard parallel Taxiway D; a 1,738’ extension of Taxiway A; rehabilitation and overlay of the existing runway; installation of PAPI-4 units on each end; installation of REIL units on each end; runway and taxiway marking; filling of an existing wet borrow pit in order to remove a wildlife hazard attractant and safety area establishment with bid alternates for a blast pad on each end.
