Runway Rehabilitation Project

The County of San Luis Obispo Board of Supervisors has approved the initiation of a $13.5 million runway rehabilitation at the San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport (SBP). Preconstruction work for the rehabilitation is complete, and construction will begin in July. The project is scheduled for completion in early fall.

The airport’s Runway 11-29 rehabilitation project is a comprehensive upgrade to the main runway and its taxiway connectors. The project also includes the rehabilitation of the entire SBP airfield lighting system, including runway lights, taxiway lights, lighted directional signs, electrical vault housing the power connections, and the controls located in the air traffic control tower. The runway rehabilitation project will not expand the runway or change any use of the property.

In order to align the construction with the airport’s commercial air traffic, much of the rehabilitation work is being completed at night. Below is a look at the anticipated monthly closures, as well as the hours.

The $13.5 million project is being entirely funded by the Federal Aviation Administration’s Airport Improvement Program (AIP).
