Work – Rehabilitation of the North Runway

In order to maintain its facilities to reliability and safety standards, ADM must carry out some rehabilitation work on the north runway.

The work at both ends of the runway has already been completed. This year, the work will focus on the rehabilitation of the central section of the runway and is scheduled to start on March 14. The first phase will end at the end of June. A second phase is scheduled from October 11 to November 7. During these periods, the north runway will be closed.

When the north runway will be closed for the work, alternative departure procedures will be used in peak periods to ensure the fluidity of operations.

ADM held four virtual information meetings to inform citizens on the alternative departure procedures during the work.

The recordings and presentations of these meetings are available below for viewing as well as an FAQ.

Update on the Work

April 14, 2022 - The work on the north runway, that started on March 14, is progressing well and everything is proceeding according to schedule.

The rehabilitation of the north runway consists of the construction of new concrete slabs on the central portion of the runway as well as electrical work. For the taxiways, the existing surface will be excavated, the drainage system constructed and then, the taxiways are backfilled with a new foundation and asphalt surface.

The work was divided into 4 phases and this year we are carrying out the penultimate phase. We expect to complete the runway rehabilitation in 2023. At the end of the project, the runway will be completely redone in concrete and will not require major work for about twenty years. Concrete is a more resistant and durable material and maintenance work on concrete runways is done faster, which reduces runway closures.

Here are some photos of the work:
