Safety is the primary consideration for the Carson City Airport during construction. To ensure all safety and security measures are maintained, the Carson City Airport Authority in conjunction with airport engineer will prepare a “Construction Safety Plan” for all projects. Appropriate Notams and AWOS broadcasts will be created. The purpose of these plans is to provide attention to aviation safety and operational practices and requirements during construction on the airport.
For additional information concerning the Construction Safety Plan, a copy will be available for review in the Carson City Airport Manager’s office located in the terminal building at the airport.
