TEMPLE - Draughon-Miller Central Texas Regional Airport has completed the largest construction project in its history. The $8 million project involved reconstruction of the airport’s 4,800 foot secondary runway, which is used for crosswind training, flight training and helicopter operations.

The airport requested consideration for a runway and taxiway overlay project in 2003 because of surface and drainage concerns on the airport’s secondary runway, according to Airport Director Sharon Rostovich.

“The last overlay for the runway was 37 years ago and the last slurry seal application was 18 years ago.

TxDOT Aviation added the project to the State’s CIP program at an estimated $2.8 million. In May 2011, engineering work began. After engineering reports were in, it was determined the runway and several taxiways needed more than just an overlay increasing the grant project to nearly $8 million,” Rostovich said.
