Runway 16R-34L Rehab

runway 16R-34L Rehab Project

The main runway at Paine Field is now scheduled to close for seven days in October to allow for repairs after recent maintenance by an outside contractor failed to produce expected results.

The repair work had been scheduled to start in late August but a labor dispute between the companies hired for the project and the union representing workers forced rescheduling. The dispute now appears resolved, and the project has been reset for early October.

Runway 16R/34L now is tentatively scheduled to close at 7 p.m. on Oct. 1, reopening at 7 p.m. on Oct. 8. 


Crews plan to create a new runway surface by milling down and overlaying a strip running up much of the 9,010-foot runway’s centerline. The newly paved area would be 65 feet wide and about 8,000 feet long under the latest plans. Work also will focus on sealing seams and repainting markings.
