FAA Announces Completion Of Nashua-Boire Field Airport Runway Project

Funded With More Than $16 Million In AIP Grants

U. S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood today announced the completion of a runway project at New Hampshire’s Nashua-Boire Field Airport funded with more than $16 million from FAA’s Airport Improvement Program (AIP).

“I applaud the FAA and all the partner agencies that made this project a reality,” Secretary LaHood said. “The FAA’s substantial investment allows the airport to continue to operate safely as it meets the needs of the flying public.”

The FAA grant funded the relocation of Runway 14/32 to improve safety. The project relocated the runway 300 feet to the north, allowing for adequate separation between the runway and a nearby taxiway. It also extended the runway by 500 feet to accommodate larger aircraft that now use the airport. The relocated runway meets FAA design standards and has runway safety areas on both ends.

“This project will provide critical safety improvements for an airport that serves as a reliever for Boston’s Logan Airport,” said Acting FAA Administrator Michael Huerta.

The airport expects to resume full operation on November 15, when the instrument approach procedures are published and all navigational aids are relocated. AIP provides $3.35 billion in annual funding for projects that are vital to maintaining the safety, capacity, and environmental stewardship of our airports. More than 3,300 airports are eligible for AIP grants benefiting commercial passengers, cargo operations, and general aviation activities throughout the nation.
