Oakland International Airport (OAK) has celebrated the completion of its 30 million USD Taxiway Victor and Bravo Rehabilitation Project.

The newly repaved taxiways provide critical access to the airport’s primary runway and will serve nearly all flight operations at OAK for the next 10–15 years.

Construction work spanned over 50 acres and included an asphalt-concrete overlay and lighting infrastructure upgrades.

Bryant L. Francis, Director of Aviation at the Port of Oakland said:

The rehabilitation of Taxiways Bravo and Victor was an important undertaking for us because of just how essential these taxiways are. Virtually all flights that depart or arrive at OAK will touch Taxiways Victor or Bravo at some point during their time on the ground. FAA grant funding was essential for us to maintain and improve this crucial thoroughfare of the airport.

The project was partially funded by three grants from the FAA’s Airport Improvement Program, which contributed nearly 26.3 million USD.

OAK will now continue to collaborate with the FAA to deliver additional airfield infrastructure improvements.

Its Taxiway Tango Rehabilitation Project is already underway, with an estimated total cost of 15.9 million USD. This work includes taxiway geometry upgrades, pavement rehabilitation, airfield grading, drainage improvements, new airfield lighting, signage improvements, utility structure upgrades and new pavement markings.

Construction on the Taxiway Tango Rehabilitation Project began in August 2022 and is expected to be complete in November 2022.

Additional future projects at OAK include the pavement and lighting rehabilitation of Taxiway Whiskey and design efforts for rehabilitation of Runways 10R-28L and 10L-28R.
