Airport Maintenance Closure – May 21 to 23

Athabasca County is beginning work to install a Precision Approach Path Indicator (PAPI) light system at the Athabasca Municipal Airport.

This stage of the project, that involves the trenching of cables and the installation of pilings, will take several days to complete and to ensure the safety of everyone a schedule for the closure of the airport is necessary.

The airport will be closed on the following dates and times:

  • Wednesday, May 21, 2014 – 11:30 am to 7:30 pm
  • Thursday, May 22, 2014 – 7 am to 7:30 pm
  • Friday, May 23, 2014 – 7 am to 6 pm

Athabasca County is endeavoring to contact as many users of the airport as possible to make them aware of the work taking place. Arrangements have been made for medical flights and with commercial users of the airport. Notices have been placed at the airport to make local users aware of this work.
