Total Est. Cost:  $4.3M
Construction Start Date:  June 2019

Taxiway Echo is the parallel taxiway serving Runway 09-27, the main runway used for commercial operations.  The 2012 Master Plan identified extending this taxiway to the threshold of Runway 27 as a key operational project to complete.

The successful contractor for this project is C-1 Contractors.  The contractor has mobilized and site excavation is underway.  Construction will take place over the summer months with completion by the end of October. 

The following is a summary of the key milestones to July 26, 2019:  

  • Excavation is well underway with the principal excavation nearing completion
  • Installation of sub-base material is progressing well
  • Night work for the installation adjacent to Runway 09-27 starts at the beginning of August and will run for one month
  • Neighbouring home owners were notified of the night work
  • A potential chance find of a culturally significant material was determined to be a small rock drain pit from a previously removed building located adjacent to the excavation area
  • Multiple abandoned services were uncovered, both known and unknown, with no safety issues arising
