On April 24, 2023, The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) and Republic Airport began a project to Rehabilitate Taxiway Alpha.  The project is anticipated to be complete by December 2023.

The Taxiway was last re-constructed in 1972 and shows signs of deterioration due to age, weathering, and service use. The pavement exhibits longitudinal, transverse, reflective, alligator, and fatigue cracking.  The existing cable, 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 – Phase I will be re-construction of the northwest half; Phase II will be re-construction of the southeast half. Each phase will be broken into several work areas to minimize disruption to airport operations. 

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 Air Missions 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 x6109g
