The Woodbine Municipal Airport has been selected to received grant funding in the amount of $338,913.06 (Grant) from the New Jersey Department of Transportation’s FY2017 Airport Improvement Program for Taxiway A Rehab: Stage II Construction.
Taxiway A is essential to the Airport’s taxiway system. Taxiway A renders an important role providing access to Runway 1 and 31. Without this taxiway, aircraft departing on Runway 1 would be required to back taxi to the departure end of the runway. Engineering Brief No, 75: Incorporation of Runway Incursion Prevention into Taxiway and Apron Design warns against using runways as taxiways.
The FAA approved Master Plan, states that the activity and the amount of based aircraft are projected to increase over time. Airside facilities at Woodbine Municipal Airport will require an upgrade to continue meeting the existing and future demands of the flying community and to comply with safety standards.
“We thank the State for awarding us this funding, which will allow us to complete the entire Taxiway A rehabilitation work already underway,” said Borough of Woodbine Mayor Pikolycky.
