Tulsa International Airport’s main runway has reopened after six months of reconstruction work.

The $20.3 million project was the third phase in a multi-phased effort to completely reconstruct the runway.

The project required the coordination of numerous organisations, including the design team led by Atkins, the project’s contractor, Interstate Highway Construction, and airport tenants.

Commercial airlines used the airport’s crosswind runway throughout the project.

Airports director, Jeff Mulder, said: “Our primary objective was to complete this project with minimal disruption to airport users. I appreciate the project team’s commitment to safety and our staff’s efforts to ensure that TUL was accessible for aircraft operations throughout the project.”

Altogether, the complete reconstruction of Runway 18L/36R is estimated to cost $55 million.

The project is predominantly funded by Federal Aviation Administration grants.
