King Salmon Airport Runway 18-36 Rehabilitation

Project # SFAPT00362

The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF), in cooperation with the Alaskan Region of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), is proposing to rehabilitate the pavement surfaces of Runway 18-36 at the King Salmon Airport.

Purpose & Need

Rehabilitation of Runway 18-36 needs to occur to keep King Salmon Airport in compliance with FAA regulations and to continue operating safely. Runway 18-36 pavement is beyond its useful life and a correction to the aligned taxiways are needed. Transitions to Taxiways C, G & N would be considered, as needed.

Project Description

The proposed project would:

  • Rehabilitate, repave, groove and stripe Runway 18-36
  • Rehabilitate, repave, and stripe partial Taxiways C, G and N, as needed
  • Rehabilitate, repave, and stripe blast pad
  • Adjust existing lights along Runway 18-36 and Taxiways C, G and N, as needed

Depending on the method used to rehabilitate the surfaces, about 15,000 cubic yards of materials, or 2,800 dump trucks loads may need to come from a local material source. Construction is anticipated to take place in 2024 to 2025.


The project is in the conceptional design phase. DOT&PF is seeking input from airport users and the public. The DOT&PF design team hosted a public open house on August 10, 2023. Graphics from this open house are provided on the Documents page. Additional comments are being accepted on the Public Involvement page.
