TAXIWAY ROMEO SUMMER 2019 CONSTRUCTION
A joint KTRK and FAA Airport Improvement Project (AIP). As many of you are aware, Taxiway Romeo (the taxiway on the north side of hangar rows Alpha–Hotel) is a bumpy ride and in much need of repair. To that end, the District was successful in securing an FAA grant for $1,981,723 to replace utility lines and repave the taxiway.
