September 2022 Airfield Construction - UPDATED WORK SCHEDULE

In accordance with Federal grant assurances, the Nampa Airport implemented an asphalt maintenance plan for the airport. You are receiving this letter because the project will impact the entire airfield; the runway, all taxilanes/taxiways and hangar access. (See attached map)

 FAA Grant Assurance #2 states in part “for the replacement or reconstruction of pavement at the airport, (the City) assures or certifies that it has implemented an effective airport pavement maintenance-management program and it assures that it will use such program for the useful life of any pavement constructed, reconstructed or repaired with Federal financial assistance at the airport.” 

 Through a combination of grants from the FAA and State of Idaho Aeronautics Division, the project will crack fill and seal coat federally funded pavements and city owned pavements.

 The project is scheduled for 17 days total. The project will begin September 7, 2022. (UPDATED DATE) Throughout the project there will be airfield closures. In an effort to mitigate the impact to our tenants the project will be broken into four phases. (See Map Below)

·        Phase 1: September 7-9 – East Apron and Taxiway Area 

·        Phase 2: September 12-15 – Runway, Parallel Taxiway and SW Corner 

·        Phase 3: September 16-20 – West Apron and Taxiway Area 

·        Phase 4: September 21-24 – Central Apron and Taxiway Area 

 What does this mean for you?  

 During Phase 2 the runway and parallel taxiway will have a hard closure.  If you plan on flying 9/12-9/15 please make arraignments to locate your aircraft at an alternate airport.  The Caldwell Airport has ramp space available. To secure parking at Caldwell, Airport Administration may be reached at 208-459-9779. 

 During Phases 1,3, and 4 the contractor will keep as close to the schedule as possible.  These dates may flex.  If you will be flying during these times, please make arraignments for alternate parking on the airport prior to the project occurring in your area.  You will be unable to access your hangar while the contractor is working in your area.  

 Tie Down and Shade Hangar Tenants – You will need to relocate your aircraft during the phase that affects your location.  If you are unable to relocate your aircraft, please reach out to the Airport Administration office at 208-468-5823 for assistance. 

We appreciate your patience during this process and know that the end result will be worth a bit of inconvenience. If you have any questions, please contact our office. Thank you and happy flying!!!
