Airfield Improvement Projects

Starting in 2018, Morristown Airport will undergo a series of capital improvement projects around the airfield. These improvements will include runway work, lighting system upgrades, runway safety area improvements and more.

All of these improvements are aimed towards giving users of MMU the best possible conditions to operate on a daily basis!

We want to keep everyone that will be impacted by these projects over the coming years as informed and updated on every phase of construction.

Check in right here for the most current information on every phase of our capital improvement projects!
