Temporary Closure of Runways Rescheduled to January 2-11, 2019

In order to complete the rehabilitation of Runway 8/26 at the Ormond Beach Municipal Airport, it will be necessary to close both of the airport’s runways to facilitate work on the area where the two runways intersect.  The runway intersection work was planned to commence on Monday, December 10, but has been rescheduled to begin on January 2 and will continue for ten (10) calendar days.  This delay is due to an equipment breakdown suffered by the paving contractor that will take a minimum of two (2) weeks to repair.

Runway 8/26 and Runway 17/35 will be closed from January 2 through January 11. The airport will remain open for helicopter activity and the provision of air traffic control services.

The runway rehabilitation project will reconstruct Runway 8/26, which is 75 feet wide and consists of 4,004 linear feet of asphaltic runway pavement, to meet current Federal Aviation Administration criteria.  The existing runway pavement is beneath the condition considered acceptable by the Florida Department of Transportation, and due to the criticality of this surface as the airport’s primary runway, rehabilitation is a high priority.
