Runway 8-26 is the primary commercial service runway at the Sunport. Molzen Corbin led reconstruction of this runway in 1996, which included concrete pavement, edge drain system, high-intensity runway light (HIRL) system, centerline lights, CAT II approach lights, grading, and drainage. However, after 20 years of service, the concrete pavement was in serious need of rehabilitation necessary to repair spalls, longitudinal cracking, and joint seal deterioration. The project was designed, and an FAA grant was captured during the same schedule as the Runway 8 and 12 Decouple project. A closure of the runway was necessary to accomplish the rehabilitation work which included removing and replacing 177 panels of the runway concrete pavement. Close coordination with the Aviation Department, FAA Air Traffic, the airlines and Kirtland Air Force Base minimized impact to airfield operations.
