location map

The Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities is proposing to resurface the runway, turnarounds, taxiway, and apron, and extend perimeter fencing at the Kokhanok Airport, and has applied for federal funding from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

The proposed project includes the following activities:

  • Resurface Runway 07/25, turnarounds, taxiway, and apron and apply dust palliative
  • Regrade Runway and Taxiway Safety Areas
  • Replace edge lighting, conduits, electrical conductors, reflective cones, and markers
  • Improve drainage, including modifications to existing culverts and regrading foreslopes and ditches
  • Replace aircraft tie-downs
  • Construct approximately 1,100 linear feet of chain link fence
  • Replace and/or relocate navigational aids, including but not limited to, primary wind cone, supplemental wind cone, and rotating beacon
  • Upgrade electrical enclosure building components
  • Clear and grub vegetation

The project will include geotechnical investigations of the existing airport embankment and potential local material sources to supply the project with borrow, processed aggregates and/or rock. Other field studies include topographic survey, wetlands delineation, invasive species survey, and a cultural resources survey. Field studies were completed in summer/fall 2023. Construction of the project is anticipated to begin as early as summer 2025.
