Runway Reconstruction Project Timeline

The airport's extensive runway reconstruction project is underway! This project will touch multiple areas at the airport and will require the airport's only runway to be closed on a couple of occasions. Below is the construction schedule. While great effort went into the pre-planning of this project in order to give airport users as much notice as possible, if Kansas experiences an exceptionally wet or cold winter/spring, this schedule may be impacted. 

  • October 9, 2023 - dirt work begins (runway open as usual)
  • December 18, 2023  to February 5, 2024- dirt work with runway closed.
  • February 5, 2024 to late March or early April 2024- no construction, dirt work consolidating (runway open as usual)
  • Late March or early April 2024 to mid-October 2024 – full depth reconstruction of the runway, runway closed.
