Runway Expansion Program

Runway 30 Threshold Relocation

Airports capable of supporting passenger air carrier operations are required by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to have Runway Safety Areas.  To preclude shortening the usable runway length to achieve the required safety areas, the Gary/Chicago International Airport is relocating the threshold for Runway 30 by approximately 900 feet.


Work under the Runway 30 Threshold Relocation Project involves:

  • Earthwork
  • Airfield lighting
  • Pavement marking
  • Fencing
  • Other miscellaneous items related to this project

Projected Start               2nd quarter 2013

Projected Completion      4th quarter 2013
