Runway Rejuvenator Project

The Boca Raton Airport Authority maintains a pavement management program in accordance with FAA regulations.  The purpose of the program is to maximize the useful life of airfield pavements through periodic inspections and maintenance activities thus saving money on costly full depth replacement of the runways and taxiways.

One such maintenance activity is applying a pavement rejuvenator.  The rejuvenator is an asphalt coating similar to driveway sealant that helps maintain the integrity and friction properties of the surface of airfield pavements.  A rejuvenator is typically applied five to ten years after new pavement installation.  The airport milled and resurfaced Runway 5/23 in 2009.

Rubber removal and new pavement markings will also be completed as part of the project.

The runway rejuvenation project will begin in October 2018 and last for 45 days.  During that time the Airport will be closed nightly from 9p.m. to 7a.m.

Pavement Management Assessment

In order to maintain a safe operating environment for Airport users and aircraft operators, the Airport has received an FDOT grant to evaluate pavement conditions on the Airport’s apron and landside pavements. The project will include a comprehensive visual inspection of the Airport pavements and an estimated Pavement Condition Index (PCI) range will be determined for purposes of prioritizing and programming future capital investments in pavement rehabilitation.

Wildlife Hazard Assessment

At the Airport, we take great considerations to minimize our impact on nearby wildlife. Funded by an FAA grant, we conducted a Wildlife Hazard Assessment that will help us understand the nature of wildlife in the vicinity of the Airport, while enhancing safety for Airport users.

The study includes:

  • An analysis of the airport’s wildlife strike history
  • Identification of the wildlife species observed and their numbers, locations, local movements, and daily and seasonal occurrences
  • Identification and location of features on and near the airport that attract wildlife
  • A description of wildlife hazards to aircraft operations

The Wildlife Hazard Management Plan will identify any specific actions the Airport may take to mitigate the risk of wildlife strikes on or near the Airport.
