Runway 5-23

Rehabilitation Project

Over the next 7-10 years, MMU will undergo a major rehabilitation project for our Runway 5-23 in what is being called “Phase II.” Separated in annual stages (A, B, C ,etc.) to minimize operational impacts, Phase II, Stage B is expected to be completed in early November, 2021. Phase II, Stage A was completed in November, 2020.

Planning for the RWY 5-23 rehabilitation project began in 2005, and DM AIRPORTS, LTD. (Operators of Morristown Airport), has been diligently working alongside engineering firms, the Federal Aviation Administration, and Airport Tenants to ensure a seamless flight experience for all who fly with MMU.

Overall Benefits of the Runway 5-23 Rehabilitation Project at MMU once completed:

  • Brand new paved surface
  • Upgraded approach systems
  • Enhanced safety areas
  • Lighting upgrades
  • And more!

With these updates, MMU will continue to shine as a premier general aviation airport for the New York Metro Airspace, State of New Jersey, and Morris County.

Phase II

Stage A

Phase II, Stage A of our runway rehabilitation project has been substantially completed. Crews will be on-site Monday for final clean up and breakdown.

While runway safety area grading has been completed, along with access road construction, crews will have to return in the Spring of 2021 to remove silt fencing installed during Phase II, Stage A once the newly-planted grass has fully established.

This work will have no impact on Runway 5-23 as the work is outside of the runway safety areas.

Phase II

Stage B

Runway Construction Update: October 4th

There are NO nightly-closures of Runway 5-23 scheduled for the week of October 4th. Crews will work during the day to prepare the Culvert One site for culvert installation starting the week of October 11th.

Phase II, Stage B Project Impacts

As Phase II, Stage B construction continues on our Runway 5-23 Rehabilitation Project, we wanted to share a progress update and outlook for the remainder of the project.

Weather impacts from two major storms, Henri and Ida, have forced the contractor to cancel multiple, scheduled closures over the past few weeks (See photos for below for post-storm damage). In order to meet the original project deadline of November 1st, there will be changes to the original schedule of closures for September and October.

For the remainder of October, there is the potential for nightly-closures (2200L-0600L) on every weeknight. Our original schedule reserved these nights for potential closures given weather impacts.

Along with the potential for more nightly-closures on weeknights, there is the potential for weekend, Runway 5-23 closures during the daytime hours in October (times TBD).

The Contractor has been doing everything they can to keep the project on time, but due to circumstances beyond their control, these potential changes may be necessary to finish Phase II, Stage B by November 1st.

As always, we will provide updated project information as soon as it is available to us and please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions.
