"DM AIRPORTS, LTD. is set to resume Phase II, Stage A Construction of the airport’s Runway 5-23 Rehabilitation Project in August 2020. The original project timeline was delayed due to COVID-19 impacts.

Morristown Airport’s Runway 5-23 is set for a major rehabilitation project over the next 7-10 years.

With a newly paved surface, upgraded approach systems, enhanced safety areas, lighting upgrades, and more, MMU will continue to shine as a premier general aviation airport for the New York Metro Airspace, State of New Jersey and Morris County.
