The project involves the following components: Runway 5-23 Pavement Rehabilitation; Runway 5-23 Runway Safety Area Improvements; Grading and Drainage Improvements; Replacement of Approach Lighting System; Taxiway E Relocation; and Runway 13-31 Runway Safety Area Improvements.
There will be a workshop style public meeting intended to present the findings, answer questions, and receive comments at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum, 353 East Hanover Avenue, Whippany, NJ on January 14, 2015 from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm. This meeting will be attended by airport personnel and their consultant.
The DEA will be available for public review and comment for thirty (30) days beginning on January 5, 2015 through February 4, 2015.
