The Angel Fire Airport is located in the most demanding climate for pavements in New Mexico: extreme cold, clay soils, and high elevation. Since the 1980s, Molzen Corbin has addressed all improvements at the Airport, including the Runway 17-35 Rehabilitation Project. The project goal was to extend the life of the severely fractured pavement and bring it back to satisfactory condition until complete runway reconstruction can be funded. Cracks were repaired using seal for narrow cracks and a hot-mix asphalt fill (including sawcutting and removal of damaged asphalt) for wider cracks. The entire runway was finished with an overlay. New pavement markings were also included in the project.
