Yeager Airport is going to have nightly closures of its runway (RWY 5/23) starting on July 5th through November 22nd. The runway is also going to be closed on eight Saturdays. The runway closures are part of an $8.7 million runway rehabilitation project.

The rehabilitation project includes

  • Replacing the centerline light system with a new LED system
  • Light installation at Taxiway C
  • Milling and paving the 30-foot center (keel) of the runway
  • Improving the runway profile to remove dips that do not meet FAA standards

This project is being 100-percent funded by the FAA and does not require a local match.

The Saturday runway closures are:

  • August 6-8
  • August 13-15
  • August 20-22
  • September 10-12
  • September 24-26
  • October 1-3
  • October 8-10
  • November 19-21

 

“I know these closures could impact some of our passengers travel plans,” said Yeager Airport Director and CEO Nick Keller. “But the work being done is necessary to make sure CRW is set up for success as the airport continues to grow.”

There are two contingent Saturdays, for runway closures at Yeager Airport, built into the schedule to accommodate for bad weather.

  • Contingent Saturday #1 October 15-17
  • Contingent Saturday #2 October 22-24

 

On the weekend of the Saturday closures, the runway will be shut down starting at 11PM on Friday and will reopen Sunday at 7am.

Federal law requires wearing a mask at all times in and on the airport and failure to comply may result in removal and denial of re-entry.
