Runway Expansion Program
Airports capable of supporting passenger air carrier operations are required by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to have Runway Safety Areas. To preclude shortening the usable runway length to achieve the required safety areas, the Gary/Chicago International Airport is relocating the threshold for Runway 30 by approximately 900 feet.
Work under the Runway 30 Threshold Relocation Project involves:
- Airfield lighting
- Pavement marking
- Other miscellaneous items related to this project
Projected Start 2nd quarter 2013
Projected Completion 4th quarter 2013
