DKX Runway and Taxiway Rehabilitation Project

The DKX Runway and Taxiway Rehabilitation Project is currently in the design phase with a projected construction schedule for the summer of 2022. This project will include the reconstruction of the runway and taxiway, relocation and reconstruction of the connectors, full electrical, lighting and runway markings.

Currently, the MKAA and its design consultant, CHA, have completed 30% of the design. This is a significant runway reconstruction project and not a typical asphalt mill and overlay rehab, so it will require a temporary closure of the runway next summer; the expected closure will be for a two-month period. The airport will remain open for tenants to access their aircraft and maintenance work can be done.

If you have any questions, please contact the DKX manager at (865) 577-4461.
