Long Island's Executive Airport
TAXIWAY ALPHA REHABILITATION PROJECT
New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) and Republic Airport will be commencing a project to Rehabilitate Taxiway Alpha. Taxiway Alpha was constructed 1972 and shows signs of deterioration due to age, weathering, and service use. A 2019 FAA Annual Certification Inspection recommended that most airport taxiways, including Taxiway Alpha, be rehabilitated as soon as possible. The pavement exhibits cracking consisting of longitudinal and transverse cracks, reflective cracking, alligator and fatigue cracking. The underground direct burial runway lighting cable and the existing incandescent lighting for Taxiway Alpha are obsolete and need replacement. Additionally, the existing signs are powered by old transformer/incandescent light technology, which is not efficient to run. Due to its age, the system is prone to being out of service. The existing taxiway edge lighting and airfield guidance signs will be replaced with state of the art energy efficient LED technology.
The project will be done in two phases – the northwest half, and the southeast half. Each phase will be broken into several work areas in order to minimize disruption to airport operations. The anticipated start will be In the spring of 2023.
Airport management will continue to provide updates as the project progresses, including advance notice of taxiway closings and detours and any work affecting night-time flight operations. Notice to Airmen or NOTAMS will be posted throughout the duration of the project and should be checked frequently. We regret any inconvenience the project may cause in the coming months for the airport’s tenants, users, and surrounding communities. Should you have any questions, please contact the Airport’s Administration office at 631-752-7707 x6109.
