Taxiway Strengthening Project to being late May 2019

  Monday, April 15, 2019


A construction project to strengthen the taxiways at Concord-Padgett Regional Airport will begin this summer. A taxiway is the stretch of pavement that connects runways with hangars, terminals and other facilities. The work will include resurfacing of Taxiway Alpha and portions of connector taxiways with 3" of bituminous asphalt. The project also includes electrical manhole and taxiway light adjustments, crack sealing, marking and drainage adjustments.

The work will be broken into six sections (Phases) and only one area will be closed at a time to allow airport operations to continue during the project.

The work will be completed by Sealand Contractors Corp., the prime contractor. Talbert, Bright, and Ellington will provide Resident Project Representative to oversee the project.

It is anticipated the project will take 75 days to fully complete.
