Telluride Airport Opens New De-icing Pad

Just in time for the ski season, Colorado’s Telluride Regional Airport completed a $7 million improvement project that features a new aircraft run-up/de-icing pad. This project was required as a result of a 2009 realignment of the parallel taxiway, a project that eliminated the previous run-up area and put the new taxiway in line with the old de-ice pad. Before completion of this latest work, the airport had to close the taxiway every time de-icing was performed.

A major part of the six-month-long project was devoted to construction of a large retaining wall sheathed in grass-seeded baskets that will allow it to blend in with the surrounding environment.
