[ARCHIVED] Murfreesboro Airport Runway Closure for Pavement Maintenance June 19

Murfreesboro Airport Exterior

Airport Operations scheduled a closure for approximately 30 days for completion of the required work. Taxiway A will not be used for departures and landings during maintenance.  

The scheduled 30-day closing period does not include days for rainy weather that can add time to the month-long runway closure. The majority of Taxiway A will be milled, repaved, sealed and remarked as part of the project. Maintenance also includes milling down a non-standard slope at one taxiway intersection. Runway 18-36 will receive crack repair, seal coating and paint. Runway 36 will be displaced 200 feet to the north. 

 “Well maintained pavement not only saves aircraft maintenance costs, it is also an FAA requirement under “Grant Assurances,” said Airport Director Gehrke. “Ensuring safety and efficient use of the airport is also a major focus of the Murfreesboro Airport and the Tennessee Division of Aeronautics.”
