NASHUA AIRPORT RUNWAY GROOVE AND SEAL PROJECT


The Runway 14/32 Groove and Seal Project was started and scheduled to be completed last year.  As soon as the weather cooperated, the grooving, sealing and first of two coats of markings (paint) portion of this project were complete.  The plan was to then give the sealant material and markings enough time to cure prior to applying the second coat of markings.  However, due to weather and scheduling conflicts, the second coating of the markings was postponed until the Spring of 2019. 

In the meantime, Nashua Airport Authority began to observe an apparent paint failure of the markings on the runway/taxiways and initiated an investigation.  After determining the probable cause of the apparent paint failure, NAA has been working with Gale Engineering and the project contractors to contrive the best method to remove of all the existing markings prior to applying the final markings.

To complete this phase of the Runway 14/32 Groove and Seal Project the airport must close the runway and taxiways for approximately 4-5 days.  Although the exact date(s) of the closure have not been determined yet the contractor is aiming for some time in mid-June.  On the afternoon of Tuesday May 28th the contractors will be testing a piece of equipment on the taxiways and possibly part of the runway.  This will entail minimal shutdown times if any.   Additionally, the Nashua Airport Authority is requiring the contractor to give a minimum of 14-day notice prior to commencement of the project. Be aware that this is a painting project therefore the start date of the project is weather dependent.

NASHUA AIRPORT CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PLAN (CIP)


Each funding year, all of the NPIAS (National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems) airports meet with the NH DOT Bureau of Aeronautics to discuss their CIP.  New Hampshire participates in FAA's Block Grant Program in which the NHDOT acts as FAA's funding and regulatory arm.  The CIP is how the airport intends to use FAA funds earmarked for the improvements of America's eligible airports.  The CIP is an ever evolving and changing document as the airport and FAA's priorities change and as funding levels fluctuate from year to year.  Below are the projects Nashua Airport hopes to accomplish in the next ten years.  There is no particular priority of the projects listed here:
