Our runway rehabilitation began January 16th, 2023. This is an exciting project that will greatly improve our runway and taxiways. Associated with these improvements will be the inconvenience of periodic taxiway and runway closures. We will do our best to minimize the impact this will have. The first phase will focus on our taxiways which will require some back taxi, but the runway will continue to be accessible.
Appropriate NOTAMS will be posted as the project progresses.
Please contact Ron Maness (Office 910-692-3212 x 1002 or Mobile 910-638-3017) with any questions you may have. Thank you for your patience and corporation during these improvements.

The runway closures will be with a “PPR” Prior Permission Request for usage. Please contact Paul for the PPR, as he’ll be the contact for the contractors.
Taxiway Closures: Monday the 20th Alpha will be closed, north of taxiway Delta to runway 23 end. Paul doesn’t have any information as of now, for the next section of taxiway closure, he’ll get it out asap.
Thanks for your patience!
March 7th Update
On Tuesday March 7th, Bravo 1 taxiway will be closed for 3 or 4 hours, starting at 8:00am. Tentatively, on Wednesday March 8th, Bravo 2 taxiway will be closed for 48 hours, starting at 8:00am. At no time, will Bravo 1 & 2 be closed at the same time. Moving forward, the week of March 20th, will start the final phase of the runway taxiway rehab. Unfortunately, this will have runway closures with a “PPR” (Prior Permission Request) attached to the Notam. The idea of the PPR is coming and going, with 2 plus hours in between. Ideally, we need to try to give the contractor as much time on the runway, to finish up as quickly as possible.

January 30th Update
In looking at the weather forecast for this coming week, we decided that due to the prediction of rain, construction would be delayed until the weather improved. As such, the runway will remain open Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday (1/30, 31 and Feb. 1) this coming week.
Currently the runway is scheduled to close this Thursday at 7:00 am.We will keep you updated on progress, your patience is appreciated.
January 26th Update
Currently, the runway is closed from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. This will run thru Friday, January 27th.
The original plan was to open the runway after Friday. However, because of Wednesday’s rain, the runway also may need to be closed on Saturday, January 28th so the work can continue.
We will let you know of any other changes as soon as possible, once we are notified by the Contractor.
We appreciate your patience and understanding!
