As part of a runway safety improvement project at Charles M. Schultz Sonoma County Airport (STS) in Santa Rosa, CA, Runway 14/32 is closed until Oct.15, 2014, and there will be a series of upcoming nighttime Runway 2/20 closures at the airport.

Notices to airmen (NOTAMs) will be issued 72 hours in advance of the closures.

The next scheduled nighttime closure is July 21 to July 25, from 10:30 p.m. (PDT) to 6 a.m. (PDT). This coincides with a busy week, due to the significant number of business aircraft arriving for a Bohemian Grove event, according to airport officials.

Phase 4 of this project, which begins on July 28, includes additional taxiway changes, such as a conversion of Runway 14/32 north of former Taxiway B (now Taxiway A4 and D) for use to taxi to and from Runway 20.

Details about these changes and the runway closures are available on the airport’s website.

In addition, there have been significant taxiway configuration changes that are not reflected in the current Jeppesen 10-9 airport diagram or the FAA AeroNav airport diagram.
