Westchester County Airport runway project estimated to cost $21.7M

“While the Westchester County Board of Legislators has voted to issue $10 million in county bonds to repave and make other improvements to the main runway at the Westchester County Airport, the bonds will cover only part of the project’s full cost, estimated at $21.7 million.”

In addition to repaving the 6,549-foot-long by 150-foot-wide runway, portions of taxiways connected with the runway will be revitalized. Taxiway edge lighting is another necessity that requires updating. The entire job is expected to be completed by October 10, 2020.

Ensuring that runways are adequately maintained ensure a safe operating environment. Organizations that support the runway project include Pace University, Fordham University, and The Business Council of Westchester’s Coalition for Westchester Airport.
