            The main cross-wind runway at Kodiak Airport has been closed by the state due to deterioration of the seams between strips of asphalt. Runway 18-36, which runs north-south, was deemed unsafe for general aviation despite emergency repairs done last fall, according to State Department of Transportation spokesman Rick Feller in Anchorage.

 

 

--          (Runway 1                  37 sec              "Last year, in the fall of ‘09 ... seams can be repaired.")

 

            Feller said the state invited Alaska Airlines representatives to come and look at Runway 18-36 and judge for themselves if it was suitable for use:

 

--          (Runway 2                  49 sec              "And Alaska Airlines ... weather conditions persist.")

 

            Feller says repair equipment is now on its way to Kodiak, and should arrive over the weekend on the ferry.

 

--          (Runway 3                  38 sec              "As soon as we can ... earlier completion than that.")

 

            Feller did not have a cost estimate on the emergency repairs. All three of Kodiak's runways are scheduled for resurfacing next year.
