Construction Projects

     CURRENT NOTAMS (ALW)

     In 2018 the Walla Walla Regional Airport is completing Phases 3 & 4 of the reconstruction of Taxiway A which includes the realignment and construction of the connector taxiways. The majority of the current taxiway pavement consists of Portland Cement Concrete (PCC) constructed in 1942-1943 with the establishment of the Walla Walla Army Air Base and subsequent rehabilitations with asphalt overlays in the 1980's and 1990's. The reconstruction of the taxiways conforms to the FAA standards contained in AC 150/5300-13A, Airport Design. To accommodate the current and anticipated airport users, the taxiways will be designed to Aircraft Design Group (ADG) C-III and the Taxiway Design Group (TDG) 5 dimensional standards. Specifics include 75 ft taxiways, installation of Medium Intensity Taxiway Lighting (MITL) with LED lights, new lighted guidance signs, new Runway End Identifier Lights (REILS), drainage improvements and re-routing existing sanitary sewer line.
