Work to replace Palomar airport runway to start in April

Work will begin in April to replace the 5,000-foot-long runway at the McClellan-Palomar Airport in Carlsbad, it was announced on Thursday.

According to the San Diego County Department of Public Works, testing found that the supporting soils under the existing runway and the pavement surface are deteriorating.

Federal Aviation Administration funds are covering the $7.9 million cost of the project, which is to be completed in five phases, according to the county. During each phase, 1,000 feet of runway will be replaced.

The county-run airport will close alternating weeks starting April 25, until the project is completed, county officials said.
