Runway Extension Update!

The DeKalb County Airport is currently in the process of extending runway 9-27 from 5,000 ft to 7,100 ft. This project has been planned for over two decades. Recently we finished construction on the extension of CR 62 (2021), and the grade and drain portion of the project (2022). In the interest of sharing the impact to not only based tenants, but also the community, below are some high-level milestone dates.

County Road 62 between CR 29 and 31 was completed in the fall of 2021 and turned over to the County. The road was built to mitigate the closing of CR 29 between CR 60 and 62.

Earthwork to the east of the existing runway and taxiway out to CR 31, to include taxiway and runway grading, CR 29 removal, and detention area construction, or what we call the Grade and Drain portion of the project, was completed in the fall of 2022.

Currently, the contractor has proposed that from 4/25/2023 through the 7/28/2023, final grade work and paving will be taking place from the existing pavement out to 7,100’. This will necessitate closure of RWY 27 for arrivals and artificially shortening RWY 9 to 4,000’. Again, during this timeframe, RWY 27 will be closed, RWY 9 will be 4,000 for landings and departures.

Beginning on or around 7-28-2023 through 8-22-2023 RWY 9-27 will be closed. This will be the period in which new markings will be put down for the 7,100’ runway, and new LED runway lighting will be installed.

From 8-23-2023 until 9-26-2023 RWY 9-27 will be closed during night-time hours and open during the day at the full-length of 7,100’ as we complete all the required lighting tasks.

Upon completion of this phase of construction, the runway will be opened full-length, 7,100’. The taxiway extension, MALSR (Approach) lighting, ILS, and AWOS will be completed in the 2024 timeframe assuming all grant funding falls as we expect it to. We will post the most up to date information on our website, www.dekalbcountyairport.com, including the construction schedule, so be sure to check there frequently. Please note that we will do our best to keep these dates and will continually work towards shortening the times for artificial shortened conditions and closures.
