Due to growth in airfield activity, the Park Rapids Municipal Airport (KPKD) needed a safer alternative to its existing 3,500 foot turf crosswind runway (Runway 18/36). To meet these increased needs TKDA prepared plans for a new 75-foot by 3,500-foot paved and lighted runway.
The new runway allows the airport to offer improved year-round operations and land aircraft in nearly all wind and weather conditions. TKDA also provided construction administration for the new runway, which included the construction of an aircraft turnaround and a new 1,837-foot taxiway. The project included the addition of airfield guidance signs and airfield runway and taxiway lights.
