Airport Projects

General Aviation Parking Lot Repaving PROJECT

The General Aviation Terminal parking lot repaving project is scheduled to being on September 2022. The improvements include the repaving and paint striping of the entire parking lot that includes the daily lot, overnight lot, tenant and employee parking area, rental car lot, and entrance roadway. The construction project will require the closing of the parking lots for up to 21 days. 

We plan to be able to keep circulation traffic for drop off and pick up and to run a shuttle bus to our overflow parking area west and across the street from the main parking lots that will be under construction. 

If you are coming out to the airport you will begin to see some parking lots blocked off and signage directing any overnight parking to use the gravel overflow lot.  When construction begins in September, all vehicles will need to use this lot or make other transportation arrangements when using our general aviation terminal at Concord-Padgett Regional Airport.

Please note that our commercial airline terminal and the parking garage will not be affected by this repaving project. 

Race teams that use the airport will have a separate arrangement whick will involve remote parking and shuttle service for those weekends when the teams are flying out or back from a race. 

North Apron Expansion Project

Beginning this fall, the airport will begin the north airport expansion project which will extend the aircraft parking ramp to the north of the existing ramp that end adjacet to the Hendrick Motorsports Hanagar.  This project will take about six weeks to complete and will involve some stormwater mitigation in addition the ramp expansion and a connector taxiway to taxiway A for aircraft traffic flow.

Virtual Tower Demonstration Project

This project that was annouced in the Spring of 2022 is in the planning and design phase this summer and construction is anticipated to begin late fall or winter time period.  A camera tower will be constructed west of the existing terminal building and a control building will be constructed to the south of the existing general aviation terminal building.  More information on this project will be shared as the constuction time nears.
