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), the grade and drain portion of the project (2022) and the runway construction itself (2023).

Construction Update: May 23rd, 2024

Runway 9-27 will be CLOSED for work starting June 2nd at 7 am, working day and night through the week and reopening on June 9th at 7am. This will be a hard closure with no ability to allow any fixed-wing operations due to having an open trench across the runway, and significant other work around the airport at the same time. The contractor's goal is to have an army onsite to not only get the threshold fix completed, but to also install the distance remaining signs, and any other wiring/trenching that needs to be done in the safety area during this closure.

The ONLY reason that the opening could be delayed, according to the engineering folks, is if the concrete cylinder test break does not yield 3,000 pounds the morning of the 9th. If it’s less than that, we will need to wait another day and break another cylinder and see what the yield is. We need at least that 3,000 pounds before we can open the runway, and curing time is the only thing that will get us there. We believe that our original date of the 9th at 7am should suffice, but, we are simply letting you know that it could take another day to get there.

Thank you for your patience as we work our way through this multi-year project. Next year, the connecting parallel taxiway!

Wonderful! Thank you for sharing the current status and milestones of the runway construction/extension. Question: are fixed-wing limitations also applied to rotorcraft or may they continue to operate off runway? (Parkview Samaritan, Paratus, Sweetwater Aviation, and many others operating at kGWB) Just curious. Please let us know if the cylinder test is successful... that would be expected, but also very good news. Thank you!
