Marana Regional Airport Improvement Project


Project Map

Project Description

Marana Regional Airport is beginning a $6M improvement project at the airport in early November 2018. Funding was made possible by the FAA, AZ Dept. of Transportation, and the Town of Marana. The project will be completed in 4 Phases, which were developed to have the least amount of impact on current airport tenants and users. Work hours will be M-F during daylight hours. Construction is anticipated to begin December 10, 2018 and continue until approximately August 2019.

Improvements Include:

  • Full depth pavement reconstruction of the FBO Apron, General Aviation Parking, and a new Jet Apron Parking Apron (currently the Helicopter Apron).

  • Reconstruction of a portion of Taxiway B (from Taxiway B2 to the Taxiway A/B intersection.

  • Removal of an existing FBO T-hangar building (Building 101).

  • Drainage improvements to the FBO Apron and Jet Apron areas.

  • Lighting upgrades at new and existing taxiway connectors.

  • New pavement markings.

Phase Descriptions

  • Section A: work will include the northwest section of the new Jet Apron (currently Helicopter Apron), and the southwest section of the FBO Apron near the Fueling Area and Hangar 83. Projected Construction Timeline: 12/10/18 - 2/15/18.

  • Section B: work will include Taxiway B, from the Taxiway B2 Connector to the Taxiway A/B Intersection; aircraft shade structure, FBO Apron and buildings 102, 103, and the west side of building 104. Projected Construction Timeline: 2/18/19 - 5/3/19.

Important Notes

  • EAST HANGAR TENANTS: Due to the closure at A2 and the taxilane that connects East Hangar Ramp to A2, in order to taxi from East hangars to Runway 12, aircraft will need to taxi SE on Twy A and across Runway 12/30 at A1 to Twy E to Twy B and re-cross Runway 12/30 to Twy A.

  • ALL OTHER TENANTS: Due to the closure at A2 and the taxilane that connects East Hangar Ramp to A2, in order to taxi to Runway 30, proceed to Twy B, cross Runway 12/30 on Twy B to Twy E to Runway 30 threshold.

  • The contractor for this construction project is Pavex Corporation.
