The completed project resulted in a full parallel taxiway for Runway 12-30 and an additional taxiway connector between Taxiway A and Runway 12-30. The taxiway geometry was developed to accommodate Group III aircraft. The concrete taxiways were designed for 66,000 dual wheeled gear (DWG) aircraft.

The second phase of the project will include the design and construction of a full parallel taxiway for Runway 9-27. The design has been completed. Construction is tentatively schedule for calendar year 2010. The work will include a new concrete taxiway, medium intensity taxiway lights, airfield signage, grading, storm drainage, pavement markings, seeding and mulching. The criteria established in Taxiway A project is being incorporated into the Taxiway B work.
