All of the construction work should be completed by the end of October. The following is an overview of the work that is planned. Updates will follow, as they are confirmed.

Pilots and Airport Users. Please also refer to SPECIAL PROCEDURES & SAFETY


Phase 1 & 2 ~ Alpha Taxiway

Safety Meeting 6:00am, Project Start, Mobilization and Pulverization of Alpha Taxiway.

This is the first two phases of the project. BFC is planning to close the airport to aircraft for 72 hours in order to complete this work as quickly and as efficiently as possible.

The Brampton-Caledon Airport will be CLOSED for 72 hours when this work is being conducted. NOTAMS will be issued.

Phase 3 ~ Access Road Limit of Construction

The next phase will involve the construction of a temporary taxiway that aircraft can use to taxi to the fuel pumps from Taxiway Foxtrot.

The BFC Fleet of aircraft will then be moved from the main ramp to the tie downs to the east of the fuel pumps.

The contractor will then delineate the main apron work area with un-serviceability barricades to provide separation between the Apron and the Airplane Refueling area.

Phase 4 ~ Pavement Restoration Adjacent to Hangars

The contractor is required to complete the pulverization, grading and base course paving in front of the hangars (area that is highlighted in ORANGE) within 24 hours (scheduled for September 18th and 19th) and then ensure that the area in front of the BFC maintenance hangars remain unobstructed throughout the duration of construction and airplanes are able to access and egress the hangars. The reconstructed area in front the hangars shall then be separated from the remaining apron area to be reconstructed using un-serviceability barricades fro the remainder of construction.

This will be the general direction for aircraft to taxi to the fuel pumps.

Phase 5, 6, and 7 ~ Construction of the Apron Expansion, Apron Culvert Replacement, Culvert Replacement and Access Restoration

During this period of construction there will be access to hangars 1, 2 and 3.

Phase 8 ~ Pulverization and Repaving of Apron

In this final phase drainage infrastructure will be completed. New aircraft tie-downs will be installed. The contractor will have 24 hours to put a final coat of asphalt  down on the whole ramp surface, in front of hangar 3 and entranceway to ramp. Fences, gates and disturbed areas will be restored.

The flight operations team will do everything possible to ensure flights and training proceed smoothly. We do not anticipate more than 2 and possibly 3 days of no flying possible. The closure period will depend on weather and on unexpected findings during construction.
