Eagle County Regional Airport (EGE) Runway Construction
Summer of 2009
Created March 31, 2009
Due to a runway construction project, operators flying to Eagle County Regional Airport (EGE) in Eagle, CO will need to be aware that runway 7/25 will be closed, impacting operations from April 15 through September 1, 2009. During this time, Taxiway A will be redesignated as Runway 7/25.
The redesignation of Taxiway A as Runway 7/25 will have the following implications:
- The airport will be open to VFR-only traffic.
- Only fixed-wing aircraft operations will be permitted daily between 0700 and 1900 local.
- The resignated taxiway will provide 7400 feet of usable runway for takeoff and landing. The temporary runway is actually 8000 feet long, but there will be a 300 ft displaced threshold at each end.
- Only aircraft with a wingspan less than 79 feet and an approach speed of less than 120 knots (category B-II) will be permitted to use the runway.
- Taxiway A will be repainted with non-precision approach markings during it's reassignment as Runway 7/25.
- No runway edge lights or precision approach path indicator (PAPI) will be available on the temporary runway.
- There will be no precision instrument approach (ie. glideslope) available to the airport.
- Aircraft landing Runway 25 may be required to turn around on the runway in order to exit to the apron.
- Hours of operation for the EGE control tower will be from 0700 - 1900 local. Hours of operation for the FBO will be from 0630 to 1900 local.
