Mark Shillington project manager from Woolpert Inc. told the aviation board the CIP is for fiscal years 2020 to 2024. He presented a copy of last year’s 10 projects for consideration. He said the top 5 projects are the most important. The first four projects involve constructing a parallel taxiway. The parallel taxiway is scheduled in four phases and includes environmental and design for the taxiway and then construct grade and drain, constructing the parallel taxiway pavement and finally constructing the connecting taxiway pavement.
The aviation board wants to get this project expedited and Shillington told the board the FAA and the INDOT Aviation side is willing to meet with them on November 21st to discuss the parallel taxiway project.
The fifth project on the list is construction of a miscellaneous airport building that could house classrooms for the school training or even additional hangers.
No action was taken on the Capital Improvement Plan Tuesday evening. At the November meeting the board will focus more on the details of what they want included in the CIP.
