Ottawa International Runway 04/22 Repaving

Ottawa International's general aviation runway 04/22 will finally be repaved this summer, starting on Monday 22 August 2011.

The work includes repairing the existing runway surface and some taxiways, plus creating a new taxiway from the button of runway 04 to the Ottawa Flying Club. Designated taxiway "S", the new route will enable aircraft to use the full length off 04 on take-off without requiring a backtrack.

As part of the job most of taxiway "P" and the other unused asphalt left over from the World War II runways in the north in-field will be removed. The part of taxiway "P" that joins "S" to 04/22 will be repaved.

The repaving work by Tomlinson is expected to take 2-3 weeks and thus should be done by mid-September.
