Runway 7/25 and Westside Apron Area

Rehabilitation Project

The San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport (SBP) will be completing a rehabilitation project for the crosswind runway, Runway 7/25, along with the taxiways and apron parking areas on the west side of the airport. The project is scheduled to begin September 12, 2022 and is anticipated to be complete by October 14th.

The project includes crack sealing and slurry sealing of the entire crosswind runway, 7/25, taxiways J, K and M, taxiway E on the west side of runway 11/29 as well as the blast pad between the edge of runway 11/29 and the threshold of runway 25. It will also include all of the airport owned and maintained pavement in the aircraft parking apron area.

Work is being conducted in 5 phases (see the map below). In addition to the closure dates for the individual phases there will also be complete closures of the airport as some of the work will take place in the safety areas of runway 11/29 or on taxiway A. Those closures will take place between midnight and 4 AM.

Commercial passenger flights are not anticipated to be impacted by this project. However, if arriving flights are significantly delayed and cannot arrive before the midnight closure time the flight may divert or return to the originating airport.

Full closures of the airport will take place on the following dates (these times are early mornings of the specified dates from 00:00 to 04:00):

September 13              00:00 to 04:00
September 17              00:00 to 04:00
September 20 – 23      (daily 00:00 to 04:00)
September 29 – 30       (daily 00:00 to 04:00)
October 13                    00:00 to 04:00
