A NOTAM has been issued for runway closure for Saturday, September 11, 2021 through Wednesday, September 15, 2021. This is probably more time than we need for applying the markings but we want wriggle room just in case.
We are all noticing supply chain issues with materials these days and this runway project is no different. The intense winter storm that hit Texas back in February affected some manufacturing plants that supply resins for paint and other industries. As a result, it has been difficult to track down white traffic paint to apply the markings on the runway. Luckily our paint suppliers and local businesses have been helping us find a few buckets here and a few buckets there.
Have a great weekend everyone! We look forward to welcoming you back to E55 soon.
