REMINDER: Morristown Airport is set to resume Phase II construction on its Runway 5-23 Rehabilitation Project. Phase II, Stage B begins July 6, 2021and is set to run through November 1, 2021.
Weather impacts from two major storms, Henri and Ida, have forced the contractor to cancel multiple, scheduled closures over the past few weeks (See photos for below for post-storm damage). In order to meet the original project deadline of November 1st, there will be changes to the original schedule of closures for September and October.
For the remainder of September and all of October, there is the potential for nightly-closures (2200L-0600L) on every weeknight. The original schedule reserved these nights for potential closures given weather impacts.
Along with the potential for more nightly-closures on weeknights, there is the potential for weekend, Runway 5-23 closures during the daytime hours in September and October (times TBD).
The Contractor has been doing everything they can to keep the project on time, but due to circumstances beyond their control, these potential changes may be necessary to finish Phase II, Stage B by November 1st.
Upcoming Runway 5-23 Nightly Closures:
· September 15 2200L - 0600L - CANCELED (inclement weather expected)
· September 16 2200L - 0600L
· September 17 2200L - 0600L
Reminder: Runway 23 relocated threshold has been installed and will remain in place for the duration of Phase II, Stage B Construction (set to conclude on November 1, 2021). Runway 5-23 usable length is 5,097 feet.
