Waterbury-Oxford Master Plan
The Waterbury-Oxford Airport (OXC) Master Plan Update (AMPU) provides long-range recommendations for the improvement and development of the Airport. The AMPU includes a detailed report and set of drawings that identify, schedule, and illustrate the projects recommended for OXC during the 20-year planning period.
Waterbury-Oxford Business Plan
The primary objective of this business plan for the Waterbury-Oxford Airport (OXC) is to identify operational and economic development opportunities to assist the Connecticut Airport Authority (CAA) with optimizing the overall benefits of the Airport for the community it serves.
Waterbury-Oxford Airport Environmental Assessment/ Environmental Impact Evaluation for Obstructions
The CAA conducted a detailed study to evaluate existing obstructions that penetrate the federally protected airspace. These obstructions are primarily trees located near runway ends or located on small hills surrounding the Airport. As a follow-up study, the CAA is reviewing the potential impacts of tree removal, and selective clearing and/or thinning in areas the area that contain airspace obstructions.
Runway Reconstruction Construction Project
In the fall of 2017, the CAA undertook a project to reconstruct the runway at Waterbury-Oxford Airport. The project included the reconstruction of runway 18-36 (approximately 5,800×100’), construction of End Safety areas as well as a full depth construction of taxiway “A”, “B”and “C”, to the extent where maximum allowable longitudinal taxiway grades were to be achieved.
Approximately 1,300 feet of the runway beginning at the north (18) end was reconstructed. The remaining 4,500 feet of the runway was milled a nominal depth and repaved. The milled section includes Taxiway “E”, “G”, “H” and “A”. In order to achieve a standard runway centerline profile, the runway 18 end was raised approximately 5 ½’. Juliano Drive was realigned to accommodate the new slopes behind the localizer tower.
