SUMMER 2016 AC Construction Projects at TRK
As part of continuing efforts to maintain Airport facilities and improve safety, four FAA-sponsored projects are planned totaling $5 million this summer. Ninety percent of the funding will come from the FAA, while 10 percent comes from the District.
NOTAMS will be issued for all projects affecting air traffic operations. With a short construction window between May and September, scheduling can be challenging, but all tenants will be kept informed on construction dates as they are confirmed.
* Golf/Hotel Hangar Row Taxilane Reconstruction. Completed August 4, 2016.
* Jet Ramp Reconstruction. 4-6 weeks. This project should have minimal airport operation impacts but will reduce available aircraft overflow parking spaces. Hangar tenants on the west side of Alpha Row will be displaced.
* Ramp Side Apron Widening between Delta and Foxtrot Taxiways. 4 weeks. This project will impact large aircraft parking options in front of the terminal, and may limit taxing options airside of the terminal building.
* Parallel Taxi Way Alpha Reconstruction. 6-8 weeks, impacts may be significant with 11-29 NOTAM advised closures. This project may require taxi and back taxi operations on runway 11-29, pushing the majority of operations to runway 2-20.
