South Hangar Complex Rooftop Solar Installation 

The airport is going solar! Stating on October 4, 2019 crews from Staten Solar will be on the roof of hangar buildings “E”, “D” and “C”. There will be no hard closure of any hangar taxilanes and there is no anticipated access issues for tenants. There will be men and equipment driving between the Airport Maintenance Building and these hangar buildings on Taxilane D during the month of October. There will be a need for the Airport Manager and project engineer to enter tenant hangars once during the project to inspect the roofing anchors from the inside (quality control). The Airport Manager will be present during the entry inside hangar areas to ensure security of tenant possessions.

All equipment at the South hangar complex is mobile and if any tenant needs to access their hangars they can request the contractor to move out of the way. Any tenant is also welcome to contact the Airport Manager at (530) 208-8074 if they prefer. Construction is anticipated to take 3 weeks to complete. Work will occur daily from 8 am until 6 pm.

Terminal Partial Sewer Line Replacement

The airport terminal building will be undergoing a partial sewer line replacement October 14-18, 2019. The contractor has informed the Airport Manager that the building water will be shut off to the Street Level and Mezzanine Level on Tuesday, October 15 & Wednesday October 16. This means that there will be no water available to the restaurant, main lobby bathrooms or City break room October 15-16, 2019.

All tenants must use the lower level restrooms for October 15-16. Those with City Offices on the lower apron level (HR, Legal, Airport) will need to vacate the offices under the restaurant sewer collector line for the five day period October 14-18 as was previously scheduled for September 16-20. Please work from home using City VPN or make arrangements to work in the City Finance Office. Please close the Flight Deck Restaurant on October 15-16. Other tenants may be open but must use the restrooms on the lower level of the terminal building. City staff can make appropriate adjustments based on direction from their department heads. Please contact the airport manager if you have any questions.North General Aviation Ramp Reconstruction-Phase V

General Aviation Ramp Reconstruction-Phase V

The Lake Tahoe Airport anticipates to start construction on General Aviation Ramp Reconstruction-Phase V (Federal Aviation Administration Grant #3-06-0249-042-2019). This is a reconstruction of failing asphalt pavement. No new land coverage is associated with this project. The project is located abeam the north hangars as depicted in the blue and orange areas.  The North General Aviation Ramp will close for the winter season as it did last year due to lack of aeronautical demand on September 16, 2019.  The North General Aviation Ramp is anticipated to reopen June 15, 2020.  

The schedule General Aviation Ramp Reconstruction-Phase V was modified due to the fact that the prime construction contractor is unable to obtain the approved asphalt mix design prior to the end of October as the asphalt plant has a backlog of prior orders. The project will now be split into two phases. First phase will commence September 16 through October 15. This phase will involve installation of sub-surface drainage structures and construction of a new apron retaining wall along the West Airport Drainage Ditch.

The second phase will commence on May 11, 2020 ending June 15, 2020 and will entail removal and replacement of asphalt by the contractor. The project will now conclude on June 15, 2020 rather than October 25, 2019. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the Airport Manager (530) 542-6182. 

This project will improve storm water quality which is the goal the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency and the City.

The General Aviation ramp north of the access road leading the AOA Access Gate V2 will be closed during construction. Low profile lighted barricades will be in place and a NOTAM issued. 

GA Ramp Phase V

North General Aviation Ramp Closed All Year.

The very north portion of the general aviation apron is closed until the pavement can be reconstructed.  Pavement is in such a poor condition that aircraft should not park there.  Low profile barricades are in place to notify pilots of the closed areas.Closed Area North General Aviation Ramp
