Airport Project

Sitka Rocky Gutierrez Airport

Location: Sitka, Alaska

Project Date: 2013

Owner: State of Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities

Contract Amount: $11,000,000

Status: Complete

Project Details: This project consisted of lengthening the runway 700 feet and cold planing and overlaying the entire runway surface. The project also included infield construction, new runway lighting, a lighted wind cone, NAVAIDS, pavement markings and construction of a new sea plane ramp. A tight, five-month timeframe required our “failure is not an option” attitude as the economy of the community depended on the runway’s completion.
