Paine Field's smallest runway closed for work

EVERETT -- Snohomish County plans a two-month closure of Paine Field's general aviation runway starting Monday.
It's part of the more than $8 million in upgrades for the county-run airport this construction season. Other projects will rebuild two Paine Field side roads.
The biggest job is overhauling the airport's smallest runway, which measures 3,000 feet long. It was built in 1987.
Reconstruction of the general aviation runway includes leveling the runway, improving drainage and realigning taxiway intersections, according to a press release from the Snohomish County Executive's Office.
The Reid Middleton firm of Everett is engineering the project. The county awarded the building contract to Imco Construction of Bellingham.
A nearly $5.4 million grant for the work comes from the Federal Aviation Administration.
The county also expects to rebuild two roads at Paine Field starting Aug. 1.
The first is 113th Place SW near the Boeing Co.'s EMC Hangar 3. The work is to occur in phases to provide uninterrupted access to the south parking lot.
Also in line for improvements is 30th Avenue W. Traffic there will be detoured through 29th Avenue W while work is underway.
The roadwork is expected to finished by Sept. 30.
The cost is expected to be about $2 million, about half of which is covered by a state Department of Ecology grant.
