1,100-Foot Extension and Entire Runway Strengthening

Cost

Molzen Corbin conducted a seven-year planning effort to extend Runway 2-20 to the north by 1,100 feet for corporate jets. The issue was extension of this runway would require 500,000 cubic yards of fill due to the falling terrain, making the project unusually expensive. The runway was first strengthened by milling the existing surfaces by 2 inches and replacing it with 3 inches of asphaltic concrete.
