[ARCHIVED] Morristown Airport Runway 5-23 Construction: July 6, 2021- November 1, 2021

" "

REMINDER: Morristown Airport is set to resume Phase II construction on its Runway 5-23 Rehabilitation Project. Phase II, Stage B begins July 6, 2021 and is set to run through November 1, 2021.


The first nightly closures of RWY 5-23 begin on July 12 (2200 - 0600). Please see below for a full list of the upcoming nightly closures of Runway 5-23:

·    July 15: 2200L - 0600L

·    July 16: 2200L - 0600L

·    July 19: 2200L - 0600L

·    July 20: 2200L - 0600L

·    July 21: 2200L - 0600L

·    July 22: 2200L - 0600L

·    July 23: 2200L - 0600L


These closures are necessary as crews will be working in and around the safety areas of Runway 5-23. Runway 13-31 will remain open during the Runway 5-23 closures.


Phase II, Stage B consists of the completion of an access road along the East side of Runway 5-23, replacement of two culverts off the approach end of 23, installation of a new JCP&L line, and installation of stormwater treatment devices.


In order to accommodate this work, a displaced threshold of 1,000' on the 23 end of Runway 5-23 will be installed. Runway 5-23 will be FULLY CLOSED from August 6 at 2200 through August 9 at 0600 to install the displaced threshold.


The displaced threshold will shorten the usable length of Runway 5-23 to 5,097' and will remain in place from August 6 through November 1. Runway 5-23 will be FULLY CLOSED a second time from October 30 at 2200 through November 1 at 0600 to remove the displaced threshold and restore Runway 5-23 to full length.


Runway 13-31 will be available for use during the two, full-weekend closures of RWY 5-23 except for one, three-hour window to accommodate threshold markings work.
