Walla Walla Regional Airport - Construction

Saturday, October 1, 2022

On February 22, 2022, work began on a $14.2 million construction project to rehabilitate part of the General Aviation Apron and between the Taxiway Safety Area (TSA) & Taxiway Object Free Area (TOFA) of Taxiway A at Walla Walla Regional Airport (ALW). The expected completion time is scheduled for September 30, 2022. The existing 1940’s concrete and asphalt overlays are showing signs of distress and failure and a reconstruction of the full-strength pavement is underway.

Work has been carefully phased to minimize the number of days the taxiway will be impacted and hangar access restricted to maximize the contractor work efficiency.

While construction is phased in Work Areas 2 and 3, a portion of TWY A and TWY A3 will be closed. Anticipated construction time for Work Area 2 is September 20 – 28, 2022. During Work Area 2 TWY A will be closed between TWY A2 and TWY A3. Aircraft with wingspan of 79ft or less may use the temporary aircraft access route that will be established on the Apron. Aircraft with wingspan over 79ft will have to back taxi on RWY 02-20. NOTAMs will be issued by ALW Operations to provide TWY restrictions information during construction.

Anticipated construction time for Work Area 3 is May 23 – June 9, 2022. During Work Area 3 a portion of TWY A and all of TWY A3 will be closed. Aircraft will have to back taxi on RWY 02-20 between TWY A2 and TWY A4. NOTAMs will be issued by ALW Operations to provide TWY restrictions information during construction.
