We have REALLY good news!
The slurry resealing is scheduled for Thursday, July 17…yes, that’s next week! It was originally planned for later in the month but the contractor asked to move it forward and will be giving us a small discount for doing so.
We received a bid from a slurry contractor that will be doing another job in our area at the end of this month. There was a narrow window of time to secure the price and the contractor could only schedule the work if we signed the contract. The price is really attractive because we would be able to save a considerable amount on mobilization costs by scheduling when the contractor would already be in the area. This is exactly what we’ve been hoping to be able to do.
Based on our projections of fundraising efforts, we believe that we can get the remaining money donated in time to accept this estimate. So we went ahead and signed the contract this week.
We need another $8,000 to close the funding gap. Now is the time to make that donation if you have not already done so.
There are a variety of ways to donate to the runway project. Please visit oceanridgeairport.org to select the one that works best for you. Remember that purchasing annual tie down packages also contributes to this fund.
A NOTAM will be posted for the airport closure for the work next week.
As always, we at ORAA appreciate your support with this effort and look forward to providing you with a pleasant airport experience here on the coast.
