Concord Regional Airport will begin a $6 million infrastructure project over the summer to strengthen the airport runway to accommodate aircraft up to 172,000 lbs. The project will also improve the airport runway lighting system which will enhance safety for aircraft using the airport.
This project will officially begin June 4th and take about 90 days to complete due to working mostly at night during from 11 PM until 6:30 AM. The strengthened runway will also be grooved to allow water to drain off the pavement and increase the breaking effectiveness for aircraft landing on the runway during wet weather conditions.
The airport will remain open during the project minimizing the impact on the regular aviation users of the airport.
