Runway 16-34 serves as the cross-wind runway and its critical aircraft is a single or twin engine, piston aircraft. The current runway configuration is capable of accommodating most Code B and some Code C aircraft but with weight restrictions.

The runway 34 threshold operational displacement of 91m (300ft) has been removed due to the decommissioning of the railway line to the south. The runway can no longer be extended without property acquisition and termination of either the old railway line or Airport Road through the runway strip. Based on the traffic forecasts and market trends influencing the Airport, it is believed that the current runway configuration will be adequate its needs during the planning period.

The runway's current PLR is 3. Should the aircraft usage remain as forecast, a conversion of runway 16-34 to an asphalt surface of an increase in the PLR is not expected to be required during the planning period.

The runway, situated in an area with relatively flat terrain and high water table, currently has no subsurface drainage system. As a result, the runway strip is prone to saturation and instability of the gravel pavement particularly during the spring and fall. In fact, due to poor drainage, NOTAM's are occasionally issued to notify the closure of the runway.


The Runway is useable by ski planes in the winter months, at their discretion, as it is listed in the CFS as "no winter maintenance." There is also a NOTAM indicating no lights on 16-34 for the winter months as they are snow covered. This reduction of service will also be noted in the CFS.
