Lake Hood Update

LHD RWY 14/32 (Gravel Strip) CLOSED for Rehabilitation planned for 2-26 May 2022:
LHD RWY 14/32 (Gravel Strip) is slated to be CLOSED for rehabilitation beginning 2 May 2022 (wx & conditions allowing).   The expected duration of the project is approximately three (3) weeks.  The rehabilitation closure is to remove and replace 12” of gravel and to make electrical and drainage improvements. The effort will entail a much more thorough/ in-depth version of the typical spring mx grading & dust control work including re-bedding and resurfacing the gravel runway, applying dust palliative and other rehabilitative work to rejuvenate the strip for use well into the future. 

Construction plans and schedules are subject to change on short notice. Please remember that with any construction project, unknown conditions may arise and changes might be required. Please check current NOTAMs and the LHD ATIS for the latest information. For more information contact the Construction Coordinator (907-306-5023), Airport Operations (907-266-2600), or the LHD Office at (907-266-2410) with any specific questions or concerns.

Aircraft requesting to arrive or depart PANC during the LHD closure will be allowed to do so. Transponder and/or ADSB requirements may be waived IAW FAA procedures (PPR), traffic and workload permitting. Pilots should advise Clearance Delivery on 119.4 (departures) or Anchorage Approach (arrivals) that they are negative transponder and/or negative ADS-B. Arrivals should contact 119.1 arriving from the north and 126.4 arriving from the east/south for arrival instructions.
