The asphalt concrete pavement on Taxiway D north of Runway 7L-25R, and Taxiway A west of Runway 12-30 is greatly deteriorated.

Both Taxiways are in need of substantial work in order to improve the surface condition and extend the life of the pavement. The work on Taxiway D and Taxiway A will consist of the reconstruction of approximately 160,000 square feet of taxiway pavement. The work will also include improvements to the taxiway shoulders, pavement markings, drainage, infield grading, signage, and lighting systems. Runway guard lights will be installed at the Taxiway D intersections with Runway 12-30 and Runway 7L-25R as well as the Taxiway A intersection with Runway 12-30.
