Runway 15-33 Extension Nears Completion

by | Sep 28, 2020 | 0 comments

Punta Gorda Airport staff is working with contractors to complete the rehabilitation and extension of Runway 15-33, which is anticipated to open in October 2020.  A 593-foot extension on the south end of Runway 15-33 increased the runway length to 6,281 feet.  Blast pads were added at each end of the runway and Taxiways E, A and D were realigned to be in compliance with FAA design standards. Kimley-Horn provided design services to complete the project, and has also been retained to design the rehabilitation of Runway 4-22.

The project also includes realigning the Henry Street access road that leads to the 600-Series T-Hangars, and realigning Woodlawn Drive on the south side of the property – both of which are still in progress.
