During the latest teleconference briefing that I attended with elected officials from across the Greater Toronto Area in late April, Pearson International Airport staff outlined how construction work on some of its major runways and taxiways would change, as a result of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on air travel.
The bottom line is that the impact of construction will be less visible over Milton skies this summer because of lower traffic levels. Work periods and durations are under review and the order of work has changed. Some projects that once were sequential no longer are.
Concrete slabs are scheduled to be replaced, complemented by a full length milling and paving, on Runway 15L/33R and concrete slab replacement is scheduled for Taxiway H, Runway 15L/33R.
All work is scheduled to be completed by the Civic Holiday weekend in August 2020. CR
