The construction season is underway across the Commonwealth at the 37 public-use general aviation airports. This is a very busy and important time of year for MassDOT Aeronautics as we strive to enhance the safety of our airports and preserve our airport infrastructure. Earlier this month, I visited North Adams Airport where the full depth runway reconstruction project is underway. I also had the opportunity to visit Northampton Airport, where the apron construction was recently completed and looks fantastic.
During the last week of June and first week of July, we will begin much needed crack sealing and airfield markings projects at 11 privately-owned public-use airports. Everyday the eight aviation professionals at MassDOT's Aeronautics Division provide the necessary aviation expertise for the successful completion of these projects.
To learn more, I invite you to check out our third MassDOT Aeronautics newsletter, now available online.
