Pinedale Airport Impacts & Closures - Summer 2021

Updated: Mar 29

Below is information on four improvement projects planned to be completed at the Pinedale Airport over the next several months which may affect your operations.


The projects planned for the summer of 2021 include:


Expand East GA Apron

Expected to run from about June 15th to October 1st, this project will involve building a new apron for large aircraft between taxiways Alpha, Bravo and Charlie. The fuel farm will be relocated so fuel availability will be limited. This project will not impact aircraft operations but there may be occasional disruptions and construction vehicles operating on the apron.


The contract for this project has been awarded to HK Contractors, Inc. and is funded by an FAA grant.


Rehabilitate Runway 11-29

This project involves the grinding of old runway pavement and then a new asphalt overlay. This will close the runway for about 10 weeks starting around July 4th. No aircraft operations will be allowed except for helicopters. Access to the airport ramp, taxiways Bravo and Charlie, the parking lot and all hangars will still be allowed.


The contract for this project has been awarded to HK Contractors, Inc. and is funded by an FAA grant.


Crack Sealing

All taxiways and aprons, not scheduled for replacement above, will have repairs to cracks in taxiways and aprons completed before seal coating (see below). This is a WYDOT funded project involving multiple airports in the region including the Big Piney Airport. We are hoping this work will be completed during the runway rehabilitation project to minimize the closure of the airport. If not, there may be additional closure time.


Seal Coat and Mark Pavements

After the crack sealing is completed, the taxiways and ramp pavements will be seal coated and have markings painted. This is also a WYDOT funded project for multiple airports in the region including the Big Piney Airport. As mentioned above, we will endeavor to complete this work at the same time as the runway project.


All four of these projects will impact the use of the airport including closure of the runway and the fuel farm for several weeks. We will be coordinating with the Big Piney Airport so that at least one airport will always be open. Further information on these impacts will be sent out in April.


Jackson Airport Closure - Summer 2022

We have received confirmation of the 2022 closure of the Jackson Airport during the months of April, May & June next year. We are working to mitigate impacts of this closure on Sublette County residents and will be making plans to promote the Pinedale Airport as an alternative during this closure. Information will be posted as it becomes available.
