Venice Airport taxiway extension opens to aircraft

Post Date:02/21/2020 1:52 PM

taxiway opens Feb. 2020A 50-foot wide by 3,400-foot long extension to Taxiway Delta, including lighting and guidance signs, opened to aircraft movements this week at Venice Municipal Airport. This extension allows for a full parallel taxiway to Runway 13/31.

The project took about 4 ½ months to complete, beginning in October 2019. The contractor was Ajax Building Corp. Design and construction cost approximately $2.4 million, paid for 90% through an FAA grant, 5% through an FDOT grant, and the remaining 5% from the City Airport Fund.

Along the edge of the new pavement and out 10 feet, sod was placed, and beyond the sod Hydroseed was applied. Hydroseed is a solution of grass seed and mulch that is sprayed on the ground and forms a crust to prevent the seed from washing away and/or being eaten by birds before it has a chance to start growing.

“Having this full parallel taxiway will greatly enhance the safety and efficiency of aircraft movements on the ground, giving aircraft a way to get to and from Runway 13/31 without having to taxi through the T-hangar area,” stated Airport Director Mark Cervasio.
