Phase I of the JNU Terminal Renovation which consists of the south and southwest corner facade (facing the tarmac) has reached substantial completion. New windows and a light refracting awning were installed to improve energy efficiency. Siding was installed thereby updating and weatherizing the structure. Additional items included in the scope of Phase I were the reroofing of the two story section of the airport terminal and the installation of heating coils in the pedestrian crosswalk between Shell Simmons Drive and the new taxi waiting area.
Phase II, consisting of the terminal expansion on the east and north sides of the building, is in full swing. Structural steel is being erected and the framing of the exterior walls is underway. The footings on the north side have been poured in preparation for framing of the addition. Excavation of the pedestrian crosswalk will begin next week with an estimated completion date for the roadway and crosswalk of August 15, 2009. Throughout the entirety of construction along Shell Simmons Drive, employees have been hired to assist with traffic congestion during peak airport hours of operations. They have also played an important role in facilitating pedestrian flow and crowding on the limited area of sidewalk. The estimated date of completion for Phase II of the JNU Airport Terminal Renovation is January 1, 2010.
Construction of the Geothermal Field began in May of 2009 and is progressing at a rapid pace. Gregory Drilling performed the drilling of the 108 wells to a depth of 360'. Harri's Plumbing and Heating is currently fabricating the piping that will carry the antifreeze liquid from the field into the airport terminal. Harri's will then be retrofitting the terminal for the new heat system. Completion of the Ground Source Heat Pump System at the JNU Airport is set to coincide with the opening of the terminal expansion on January 1, 2010.

- Airfield Maintenance Facilities Project (aka Snow Removal Equipment Bldg)
The Schematic Design documents, prepared by ECI/Hyer Architects and a team of design engineers, will be reviewed on January 14 and 15, 2009. Contact Airport Architect Catherine Fritz at (907) 586-0452 or email@example.com for additional information.
- Runway Safety Area Project
Phase II of the project is nearly complete. Remaining work includes installation of the control system and commissioning for the new approach lighting systems at both ends of the runway. This work is scheduled for completion in December 2013 under contract to FAA.
- Runway Rehabilitation Project
The pavement and the lighting systems on Runway 8/26 have reached the end of their useful life and require extensive rehabilitation. In addition, the Jordan Creek culvert under the runway is nearing the end of its useful life and needs to be replaced. USKH Inc. is currently providing design services for the project to be constructed in the summer of 2014. During the construction, several tenants may be disrupted to allow aircraft to use the parallel taxiway as a temporary runway while the main runway is under construction.
Preliminary design documents have been received from the consultant and are available for review and comment. Use the link below to download the Construction Safety and Phasing Plan. Review comments on the preliminary design documents will be accepted until November 26, 2013. Contact Ken Nichols, Airport Engineer, at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
