William R Fairchild Int’l Airport Runway Construction Project
On July 6, 2023, construction will commence at William R. Fairchild Int’l Airport to rehabilitate Runway 08/26. Construction elements include: repaving 5000’ of runway; replacement/upgrade of various lighting systems; repaint runway markings; redesignate Runway 08/26 to 09/27 due to magnetic variation changes; regroove runway; and upgrade several instrument approach systems. This will be the first major resurfacing on the runway in over 20 years and is a much-needed project to ensure the runway will last decades into the future. Project funding will be through grants provided by the FAA Airport Improvement Program, Washington State Department of Transportation, and the Port of Port Angeles.
