The Connecticut Department of Transportation’s Office of Engineering is developing plans for rehabilitation of Runway 18-36 and Taxiway B at Waterbury - Oxford Airport.
The purpose of this project is to improve the service life of the runway and taxiway.
The project involves milling and overlaying approximately 5,000 feet of Runway 18-36 and 1,900 feet of Taxiway B. The runway and taxiway will not change in length, width or layout.
The present schedule indicates that the design will be completed in January 2014, with construction anticipated to start summer 2014. This project will be undertaken with both state and federal funds.
It is the Department’s policy to keep the public informed and involved when such projects are undertaken. It is important that the community share its concerns with us to assist in the project’s development. It is not anticipated that an informational meeting or a formal public hearing will be held for this project due to the limited nature of the proposed work.
Anyone interested in receiving information on this project may do so by contacting Mr. John Hanifin, Project Manager, at (860) 594-2899 or by e-mail at John.Hanifin@ct.gov. Please make reference to Project No. 107-176.
