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

Phase I was advertised for bids on January 23, 2019. Bids were received on February 21, 2019. Granite Construction was the low and responsible bidder on the base bid. The project was presented in March 2019 at the RTAA Board meeting and approved pending receipt of an Airport Improvements Program (AIP) grant from the FAA. The AIP grant was received on June 18, 2019. Construction began in March 2020 and is scheduled to be completed by November 2020.
