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
year, in the fall of ‘09 ... seams can be repaired.")
the state invited Alaska Airlines representatives to come and look at
18-36 and judge for themselves if it was suitable for use:
-- (Runway 2 49
Alaska Airlines ... weather conditions persist.")
repair equipment is now on its way to Kodiak, and should arrive over the
on the ferry.
-- (Runway 3 38
soon as we can ... earlier completion than that.")
not have a cost estimate on the emergency repairs. All three of Kodiak's
runways are scheduled for resurfacing next year.
