Airport Manager, Gary Judd says over $192,000 was granted to them from the "ConnectOregon iV" Program to improve the airport taxiway.  "The old taxiway "A", which on the west side of the field was totally coming apart- a lot of patches in it.  And so with this funding we're doing 2 things with it: one is we're totally rehabilitating the runway, it's all brand new surface, brand new sub-base on it, bringing it all up to FAA standards.  We're also moving it approximately 9 feet to the west, which give us a little more clearance from out main runway for some of the larger aircraft, that helps meet FAA safety specifications."

 

Judd says they have already begun work on the taxiway, because they obtained matching funds.  He believes the project should be done by the end of October.

 

The funds Bend Airport received is part of the Oregon Department of Transportation "ConnectOregon IV" program that distributed over $40-million to almost 65 projects throughout Oregon.
