Cape Girardeau Regional Airport closing runway for Taxiway B project
CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) - The Cape Girardeau Regional Airport is moving forward with its Taxiway B project.
According to the airport’s Facebook page on Friday, September 30, runway 10-28 will be closed starting on Monday, October 3 at 5 a.m.
This is part of phase 1 of the project. The runway is expected to be closed for 10 days.
Some other airfield closures include:
- Taxiway C
- Taxiway A - from B to C
- Taxiway B - from A to Runway 28
Airport leaders reminded everyone to check NOTAMs often, be aware of your surroundings, communicate with ATCT and use other nearby airports for practice/pattern work.
The Taxiway B Reconstruction project began earlier in September.
According to the city’s website, the taxiway will be reconstructed with a new configuration to prevent direct access from apron to active taxiway. This is per FAA regulations.
The project completion date is set for November.
In addition, a new terminal project is underway at the airport. It includes building a 20,000-square-foot facility next to the existing terminal building.
