Runway 13/31 Improvements

City of Litchfield, Minnesota

Runway 13/31, Taxiway A, and the apron pavement were in dire need of reconstruction due to severe longitudinal and transverse cracking, rutting, depressions, and patching. Fully reconstructing all pavements in one year was not feasible because of limited Federal funding.

Bolton & Menk designed and constructed a full-depth reclamation (FDR) project to improve the airport's pavement condition.

Using the FDR process allowed the city to reconstruct the runway, taxiway, and apron within the federal funding amount available.
