California commercial aviation center, Van Nuys Airport, has completed the first phase of a $ 26.3 million refurbishment project on Taxiway B. The Los Angeles area included a complete restoration of the north end of the runway, improved markings, the installation of integrated and elevated LED protection lights, a new explosion-proof barrier to the east of runway 16L and signalling enhancements.

Track 16R / 34L, which was shortened from 8,000 feet to 5,600 feet during construction, will resume its full length in early June. After that, runway 16L / 34R will be closed and used as a taxiway working on other sections of taxiway B. This lane is expected to reopen in mid-December.

“With this multi-million dollar investment in Van Nuys Airport, we are ensuring the safety and longevity of one of the busiest general aviation airports in the world,” said Los Angeles World Airports CEO Deborah Flint. “The work on this taxiway has been on-budget, despite challenging weather conditions earlier this year, and we’re excited to move to the next phases of construction.”

The project, which started in January, is expected to take 14 months to extend the life of the taxiway by at least two decades and increase safety.
