Taxiway Paving to Shift Runway Use
Posted Mon Aug 14, 2006 2:47 pm UTC

News Advisory
For immediate release: August 14, 2006

The Ohio State University Airport will begin pavement work on a taxiway leading to the south runway
during the week of Aug. 21, resulting in a temporary shift of small aircraft to the north runway.
The south runway will continue to handle jets and turbo-props, but will otherwise have limited use
for approximately three to four weeks.

¯Residents near either end of the north runway might notice an increase in small aircraft over their
homes during that period,¯ said Doug Hammon, Airport Director. ¯At the same time, we will
drastically reduce the number of practice take-offs and landings, which are typically done on the
north runway.¯

The project is part of a three-year capital improvements plan to rehabilitate the runways and
taxiways and install new lighting. The airport is also adding more security fences and gates during
this period.
