The extension of Taxiway B (the project) will include an area approximately 1,300 feet long with a minimum 75 feet width. The project will include a 35-foot paved shoulder and LED edge lighting on each side. The project will also involve adding a turn-around area to allow large aircraft utilizing the hangars along Taxiway B to turn around without assistance, reversing direction on Taxiway B, so that aircraft can safely return to the runway or other destinations on the airport.
