Evening update: Snow is continuing to fall this afternoon, but we indeed managed to open 16:00 local. Due to the heavy snow fall, our snowbanks have grown to the point we need to implement wingtip clearance restrictions. Wingspan is restricted to 45’ on all runway/taxiways. We anticipate expanding wingspan restrictions to 56’ tomorrow during tower operations for runway 11/29, and using taxiways Foxtrot and Delta to access 11/29. Wingspan restrictions will return to 45' when tower is not in operation. West end hangar rows are almost opened, and tomorrow we’ll continue working on A-H hangars; we have deep snow that must be pushed one loader at a time, to then be ramped or tossed with our snow-blowers. O&M continues to clear snow as quickly and safely as possible. Thank you for your patience.
Please check NOTAMS and FICONS for the latest updates.
