REDMOND, OR -- Redmond Airport officials say reconstruction of the secondary runway will begin February 26. The terminal and primary runway will remain open during the project, allowing commercial air service to continue.


Airport Director Zach Bass said in a statement, "Due to the cross-section work completed as part of our 2016 primary runway reconstruction project, we will not have to close the airport to work on secondary runway 11-29." He adds, "We are focused on improving our infrastructure with minimal disruption to the 800,000+ air passengers we serve annually, US Forest Service operations, hangar tenants and local business that call RDM home."


Nearly all of the funding for the $10 million project is from a grant from the FAA; the remainder will be paid for through airport funds. Click HERE for more information. Bass expects runway 11-29 will reopen by October fourth.
