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.
