Runway 16R-34L Rehab

runway 16R-34L Rehab Project

The main runway at Paine Field reopened as scheduled Oct. 8 after a week of repairs that upgraded its surface along most of its length.

The repair work had been set for late August but was delayed by a labor dispute between the companies hired for the project and the union representing workers.

Runway 16R/34L closed at 7 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 1, and reopened just before 7 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 8. 


Crews created 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 is 65 feet wide and about 8,000 feet long. Work also focused on sealing seams and repainting markings. Additional closures are expected when crews return to install grooves along the new runway surface.
