The Mojave Air & Space Port will rebuilding runways 4-22 this fall with the help of a $3.5 million grant from the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Airport Improvement Program (AIP).
General Manager Stu Witt said the crosswind runway will be rebuilt, widened from 50 to 60 feet, outfitted with lighting, and restored to its original 4,746 feet from its current 3,943 feet. Improvements will be made to the shoulders and taxiway access, he said.
The FAA’s AIP grant is covering $3.5 million of the nearly $4 million cost. This is the most expensive project being undertaken in California this year under the federal program, Witt said.
The airport is also applying to the state of California for a 2.5 percent AIP matching grant to defray some of the costs. The grant would total about $88,000.
