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:

NASHUA AIRPORT RUNWAY GROOVE AND SEAL PROJECT - PHASE I


As we welcome Spring at Boire Field we are looking forward to cleaning up after the snow has melted and moving forward with our Runway 14-32 Groove, Seal and Remark project.  This project was originally scheduled to begin in the Fall of 2017.  Unfortunately, by the time we received final approval from Governor and Council for funding this project, it was too late in the season to begin due to the weather.

There are two phases associated with this project.  First the grooving and then the sealing and remarking of the runway.  The tentative schedule (which is dependent upon the weather) is as follows:


  • Grooving will commence on April 16th and will be finished on April 26th.  This phase will be done between the hours of 8 pm and 7 am daily.  During these hours the runway will be closed.
  • Sealing and remarking will commence on May 14th and will be finished on May 18th.  This phase will require the runway to be closed 24 hours/day for the 5 days of this phase.  If the weather doesn’t cooperate the back up dates will be May 21st through May 25th.
