This project required the reconstruction of 4,300 linear feet of runway including a 20 foot fill on the south end to bring the runway up to compliance.  Crews also reconstructed portions of Taxiways A & B and constructed a new Taxiway C.  This contract required the airport to shut down for 100 days while our team completed the project.  Rock excavation was completed using a D10 dozer and excavators with hoe rams.
