Tenant Meeting – Construction Impacts & Runway Safety Program
Wednesday, Oct. 16, 2019
1 p.m. at the Board Room
7375 Utilities Road, PGD
Join us to learn more about the Runway Safety Program and upcoming construction phasing plan for 15-33.
Speakers include George Harper, Air Traffic Manager and Ben Duke, Airside Ops & Regulatory Manager.
- We will be reviewing the upcoming construction phasing plan and laying out the impacts that it will have on the airport users.
- We will discuss how stakeholders will be notified and how to check for updated changes at PGD.
- Finally we will be reviewing the FAA’s Runway Safety program for best practices to avoid having delays or incursions. Wrong-surface operations have led to runway incursions, near misses, surface collisions and fatal accidents.
Runway 15-33 Rehabilitation and Extension
This project consists of constructing a 593-foot extension on the south end of Runway 15-33 (increasing the length to 6,281 feet) and rehabilitating the existing runway pavement. In addition, Woodlawn Drive will be realigned to be outside the limits of the new Runway Protection Zone (RPZ) on the south end of Runway 33 once it is extended to the south.
Runway 4-22 Rehabilitation
This project will include the rehabilitation, not the extension, of Runway 4-22, which is currently 7,192 feet long. The airport is in the process of acquiring approximately 45 acres of property within the RPZ and an additional 15 acres of property on the north end of Runway 4-22.
