Parallel Taxiway Construction Update At The Griffith-Merrillville Airport
Construction of the parallel taxiway began at the Airport on August 17, 2011. A full parallel taxiway from the ramp area to the east end of runway 26 and a partial parallel taxiway from the west end of runway 08 to approximately mid-field was completed the summer of 2012. The taxiway has lights and reflectors installed. This project will help to eliminate back taxiing on the runway and is a vital safety enhancement for the Airport. The final connection of the runway 08 taxiway is scheduled under the Airports Capital Improvement Program plan in the near future.
