egtmedia59The Lanai Airport, one of the few places on Lanai that Oracle Corp. CEO Larry Ellison does not own, is nearing a $25 million to $30 million runway safety improvement project, according to a request for proposals from the state.

The work includes excavation and embankment to place fill material within the runway safety area at the southern end of the existing runway to comply with Federal Aviation Administration airport safety requirements.

Additionally, plans are to add a paved blast pad with new perimeter road and fencing work and other miscellaneous work at the state-owned airport.

PBN first reported that Lanai Airport would be getting state and federal government funds for $28 million in improvements, including the $27 million in runway safety improvements.

Separately, some streets on Lanai will undergo some repair work that’s estimated to cost between $300,000 and $500,000.

The project involves resurfacing of Caldwell Avenue, Ehunani Circle, Houston Street, Kahana Street, Naha Street, Nani Street and 12th Street in Lanai City.

Additional work includes removal of obstructions, road pavement improvements, adjusting manholes and water valves, pavement striping and markers, as well as replacing street signs.
