Morristown Airport’s next phase (Phase IX) of its Runway 5-23 Rehabilitation Project is scheduled to begin on July 10, 2023. Phase IX is centered around removal of an existing drainage culvert and installation of its replacement. The location of this work will cause a consecutive, 30 calendar day closure (July 10 – August 9) of Runway 5-23, along with other airfield impacts.

Crews will begin work in the Blue Area (Work Area 1) of the “Culvert Replacement Area,” shown in the image above on July 10. Crews will work from East to West (right to left on the image) and cross runway 5-23 to remove the existing culvert, install the replacement and then repave the excavated section of runway.

Once work in the Blue Area (Work Area 1) is complete, crews will transition to the Orange Area (Work Area 2). To accommodate work in this area, the intersection of Taxiways Alpha and Bravo will be closed for 22 consecutive calendar days. The entire project is expected to wrap up by the middle of September, 2023.
