Electrical Replacement Project Completed at Richland Airport

November 16, 2022

Richland, Wash.
– Crews completed a monthslong electrical replacement project at the Richland Airport.

Work began in July and required strategic planning of the phased runway and taxiway closures to minimize disruptions.

The port obtained a $3,156,583  million grant from the Federal Aviation Administration to fully fund replacing the airport’s entire electrical system.

Due to delivery delays, the installation of some final equipment will be delayed until spring 2023. However, that installation work will not require any runway closures.
