Runway 9-27 Rehabilitation and Taxi lane Construction

Start Date: 5/2/2021
Completion Date: 8/13/2021

The project included new taxi lanes, reconstruction of the Main Runway and Connectors, installation of drainage piping, and updated lighting along the runway. It was built in four main phases to help limit the impact on the airport operations, pilots, and Helena Community. Roughly 75% of the work was completed in only 35 days.



“Thank you again – we greatly appreciate everyone’s efforts on such a critical, monumental project! The FAA has taken notice too and they are showcasing this project at an upcoming airport managers/engineers/FAA conference. I truly believe that this was the best orchestrated runway project that I have ever seen at any airport in my 30 plus years of being in this industry. Thank you!”
