Runway 14L/32R Rehabilitation

The pavement on Runway 14L/32R at King County International Airport-Boeing Field (KCIA) is at the end of its useful life. Without rehabilitation, it will continue to deteriorate until it is unsafe for aircraft operations. This project is intended to extend the useful life of the runway, which is especially key to small general aviation aircraft operating in and out of KCIA. Planning is underway to rehabilitate Runway 14L/32R, also known as the secondary runway, in 2024. This work will be funded by a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Airport Improvement Program (AIP) grant. The project will be completed in three phases, the first phase being alternatives analysis and predesign. The second phase will incorporate design and bidding services, and the third phase being construction administration services.
