Extend Taxiway Echo East

Extend Taxiway Echo East 2019
Total Est. Cost:  $4.3M
Construction Start Date:  June 2019
Status:  Project is substantially complete

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 following is a summary of the key milestones to December 31, 2019:  

  • Project is substantially complete
  • NavCanada has not yet provided a cost estimate for their portion of CCTV work and this is required to provide the situational awareness they need to control the new taxiway 
  • Seeding and topsoil will wait until drier weather.
