Port to discuss taxiway improvements

Improvements to the taxiways at the Bremerton International Airport will be discussed when the board of commissioners for the Port of Bremerton meets on Tuesday.

The meeting will be at 6 p.m. in the Bill Mahan conference room at the Port Administration Building, 8850 SW Highway 3, Bremerton.

On the agenda for action is a contract with W&H Pacific for the 2014 Taxiway and Apron Improvement Project that has been authorized by the FAA.

The project includes the re-alignment of taxiway "Foxtrot" to meet current FAA design and safety standards, the rehabilitation and pavings of Taxiways A, B, C, D, and G and the rehabilitation and paving of the apron in front of the terminal building.

The design will be in two phases. Phase one is the pre-design work consisting of surveying and site work. Phase two is the final design.

The contract is for work for phase one and the cost is $98,453, 90 percent of which is being paid by the FAA. The port's portion  is $9,845.

The board also will have a work session to discuss the Airport Way connector road.

The public can attend and there is a public comment time mid-way through the agenda.
