RNO Master Plan: Project 1

Project 1:  Airfield Runway Incursion Mitigation Improvements
(south of Atlantic Aviation apron)

Project Description

Near the intersection of Taxiway Charlie and Taxiway Lima, south of the Atlantic Aviation apron, the FAA has identified a Runway Incursion site, requiring mitigation for safety purposes. This small airfield project has been included in much larger airfield reconstruction project also known as the Runway 16R/34L Reconstruction project. The Runway Incursion Mitigation (RIM) work involves the replacement of an existing taxilane connection to the Atlantic Aviation apron with a new taxilane connection between Taxiway Lima and the apron. Because this RIM work is included in Phase 1 of a larger airfield project, all schedule and cost information below represents the larger project – Runway 16R/34L Reconstruction, Phase 1.

Current Phase

Design for Phase 1 is nearly complete, and the design team is focusing on Phase 2. Construction bids for Phase 1 have been advertised and will be opened on February 21, 2019. The results of the solicitation and the recommended selection will be brought before the RTAA Board of Trustees for discussion and possible approval in March 2019. Funding for construction is not yet available.
