10/28 - Updates from Davenport Airport Manager, Tom Vesalga:

The Runway 3/21 Reconstruction Project at our Airport is reaching its completion. But with all projects of this size, there are always those items that require additional work before they meet the highest standards of safety. One item that requires additional work is the replacement of several concrete panels on Runway 15/33 due to a problem with the aggregate within. This aggregate has worked its way to the surface requiring the replacement of these panels. Although it is an inconvenience, it is not uncommon. Because the panels are on the runway centerline, it will be necessary to close Runway 15/33, as well as the Airport for the repairs.

The repair schedule for the panel replacement will begin on Thursday, October 3012014 at 6:00 am and continue through Saturday, November 112014 at 6:00 pm. This means that the Airport will be closed while we are making these necessary repairs.

I understand that this is quite short notice, but I assure you that I am passing this along with the utmost urgency. We are very positive that at the end of the three days closure we will have a safe and trouble free runway system that we can be proud of.
