The City of Kingston intends to start work on the proposed extension of the runway at Kingston’s Norman Rogers Airport this fall.
This project will enhance the local and regional economy by supporting a wider range of aircraft and the potential for improved air service. Construction is expected to begin in late fall 2017 and be completed in fall 2018.
The City conducted public consultation on this work 2013-2016. This public input was incorporated, considered and addressed as part of the Environmental Assessment report received by council in 2016. New regulations introduced by Transport Canada in 2017 allow for an added opportunity for the public to provide input on the runway extension work.
The City proposes to extend Runway 01-19 approximately 115m to the south and 212m to the north as shown in a project map available at CityofKingston.ca/Airport. The work will include new pavement construction, earthworks, airfield lighting and markings along with select improvements to the existing runway to comply with the latest Transport Canada safety standards.
