Runway extension proposed in Tulsa International Airport master plan
August 17, 2017
Extending a runway over the Gilcrease Expressway is one of several proposals in the draft of a master plan for Tulsa International Airport that is being considered by the Tulsa Airports Improvement Trust.
Under that proposal, the north-south runway on the west side of the airport could be lengthened to serve as a secondary runway for airlines, as well as for general aviation planes.
By bridging a section of Oklahoma 11 just east of Sheridan Road, the runway could be extended 2,200 feet from its present 6,100 feet, according to the proposal.
The current east-west runway — now the secondary runway for airliners — could be closed, and there would be no need for a third north-south runway east of Mingo Road, which has been under consideration for decades and is still listed as a possibility in the new plan.
The draft of the master plan was prepared by Mead & Hunt for $828,300, 90 percent of which was paid with a Federal Aviation Administration grant. The 435-page draft is divided into seven chapters, and includes a 73-page recycling plan.
