The Red Bluff Airport Runway (California) Rehabilitation Project construction is set to begin May 1, after the project was previously delayed due to low temperatures and wet weather in the fall of 2016.

The runway will be closed during the construction phase May 1-16. On May 17 the runway will be reopened for a 30-day period to allow for curing of runway markings. It will be closed overnight on June 15-16 for final markings.

The project is anticipated to be completed by June 16.

The goal is to rehabilitate the pavement of the runway with a combination of milling and asphalt concrete overlay of the pavement in the southern 1,450 feet of the runway and placing a bituminous seal coat on the remainder of the runway pavement.

The mobilization phase has started and is anticipated to end on May 1. During this phase, the contractor is required to submit the required design submittal, the safety documents and the quality control program documents to meet Federal Aviation Administration requirements.
