Taxiway C is a partial parallel taxiway to Runway 18/36. The taxiway ended 1,100 feet south of the Runway 18 threshold. In order to increase safety operations on Runway 18/36, Taxiway C was extended 1,100 feet to the Runway 18 threshold. This provides a full parallel taxiway to Runway 18/36 and avoids back-taxiing on the runway. The project was completed within the allowable federal funding. The taxiway was opened the day after completing construction to the joy of the many airport users.
