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 on October 1st 2018 and last for 45 days. During that time the Airport will be closed nightly from 9p.m. to 7a.m.
