The work involves “demolition of the existing runway, replacement of the runway, grading of the entire airfield, stabilization of the existing soils, and construction of a new taxiway and parking apron," said Joseph Domeier, Randolph’s 502nd Civil Engineer Squadron project manager. The construction began in May. The new 10,000-foot runway will be 150-feet wide with 10-foot shoulders on both sides, states the release. Randolph’s 12th Flying Training Wing uses the airfield for instructor pilot training. The airfield also supports disaster-relief efforts in the region, states the release.
