Chiloquin State Airport, Runway 17-35 Reconstruction

Chiloquin, Oregon

The runway surface at Chiloquin State Airport was severely deteriorated and had excessive cracking. Century West provided design services for the reconstruction of Runway 17-35. Along with reconstructing the runway, “turn-arounds” were constructed at each end, and the West tie-down apron was reconstructed. The project also included a new MIRL system and the replacement of the existing rotating beacon with a new beacon and tower, and obstruction removal. Reconstruction of the pavements was accomplished by pulverization and reuse of the existing pavement and base materials in the new pavement section. Century West also conducted an environmental study which resulted in a finding of “no effect” caused by the improvements. The airport is located in historic tribal lands and particular attention was given to working with the local tribal staff to avoid impact to cultural resources.
