2018 construction projects:
- Small runway 9/27 closures will be necessary to complete the landscaping and punch list of last year's improvements. Watch for notams and the X's
- Taxiway "B" from "C" to "E," widened to 50' concrete. The State of Illinois held a bid opening on August 3rd. D Construction, the same contractor that will be doing the terminal parking lot, was the low bidder. This project is not expected to start until the spring of 2019. We are working on funding to complete the 50' and extended this all the way East to Taxiway "F."
- Executive terminal parking lot overlay and expansion. .D Construction is waiting for all the paperwork to be executed. Work is expected to start this month. This is a contractual 35 calendar day project. Parking will be remote during the construction, Grass, Building 2, 3 or behind 100 are alternatives. When the project is complete there will be a new surface of asphalt and additional parking.

The Senate hasn't acted on the FAA Reauthorization. We are very excited about the possibility of the Congressman Dan Lipinski amendment, who has included in the house version a new small airport funding program. The FAA Reauthorization act is still on the Senate floor. Senator Duckworth's and Durbin's offices have informed us they will support our cause. The FAA budget runs out on September 30th, 2018. Will the Senate consider the new bill or will they vote on a continuing resolution freezing the FAA's budget authorization??? We will keep you posted.
