Runway 2/20 Reopens!

Nov 16, 2023


KTRK's crosswind runway Runway 2/20 reopened on November 16, 2023 after 17 weeks of reconstruction.  The $7M project (same footprint at 4,650' x 75') was sponsored by FAA Airport Improvement Program "AIP", CA Division of Aeronautics and Truckee Tahoe Airport District funding. Local pilot Mike Daniel with his Carbon Cub aircraft was the first to take off and land on the reopened runway. Brandley Engineering was the engineering firm on the project, and Mercer-Fraser was the General Contractor. (Photos by: Marc Lamb)  ➤ First Flight, Pilot Mike Daniel Video
