Runway 5-23 Construction Begins July 6
Morristown Airport is set to resume Phase II construction on its Runway 5-23 Rehabilitation Project. Phase II, Stage B begins July 6, 2021 and is set to run through November 1, 2021.
Phase II, Stage B consists of completion of an access road along the East side of Runway 5-23, replacement of two culverts off the approach end of 23, installation of a new JCP&L line and installation of storm water treatment devices.
In order to accommodate this work, a displaced threshold of 1,000′ on the 23 end of Runway 5-23 will be installed. Runway 5-23 will be FULLY CLOSED from August 6 at 2200 through August 9 at 0600 to install the displaced threshold.
The displaced threshold will shorten the usable length of Runway 5-23 to 5,097′ and will remain in place from August 6 through November 1. Runway 5-23 will be FULLY CLOSED a second time from October 30 at 2200 through November 1 at 0600 to remove the displaced threshold and restore Runway 5-23 to full length.
Runway 13-31 will be available for use during the two, full-weekend closures of RWY 5-23 except for one, three-hour window to accommodate threshold markings work.
