Airport Improvements Continue at Wiley Post Airport

As work wraps up on Phase I of Wiley Post Airport’s runway and taxiway enhancement project, Phase II is ready to get underway. The multi-year projects will ultimately improve the quality and safety of the airfield.

The phasing plans call for the rehabilitation and improvement of drainage on the airport’s primary runway and parallel taxiway system along with upgrades to signage, runway lights and other navigational aids. The two phases combined are expected to take three years to complete with an investment of $8.1million. The primary source of funding for the projects is the Oklahoma City Airport Trust which will contribute over $4 million. Additional funding will come in the form of grants from the state of Oklahoma and the Federal government.

Phase II, which is scheduled to begin November 2, 2015, includes the following:

· Diamond Grinding pavement lips on Runway 17L/35R (approximately 18,000 sy)

During this Phase, Runway 17L/35R will have an extended closure of approximately 182 working days.
