Runway 31 Safety Area, NAVAIDs & Marking Project


Project Description

This project enhanced several components of the Columbus Airport airfield for safety and usability.  First, the Runway 31 end safety area was brought into FAA compliance by grading and embankment placement lengthening the overrun area.  Due to a nearby property line, the RW 31 threshold still required a 150’ displacement.  Additionally, the team updated the navigational aids for this approach by demolishing an inoperable VASI system and installing a new PAPI-4 system.  Related work on this runway end included drainage improvements, edge and threshold lighting relocation and new pavement markings.  The project also included crack sealing for Runway 13-31, as well as parallel Taxiway C and associated connectors.  Finally, pavement markings throughout the entire airfield were improved, including remarking the primary Runway 6-24, and relocating/enhancing multiple hold lines and surface painted signs.
