Kittitas County, WA -
Kittitas County is taking action temporarily closing Bowers Field runway 7/25. This closure is being conducted in response to deteriorated asphalt paving that is creating a hazard to airman.
The County has sought repair options for the past year without success. The Federal Aviation Administration is working with the County developing a plan to lengthen runway 11/29 in anticipation of the eventual closure of 7/25. Runway 11/29 is a concrete runway in good repair and serves better than 90 percent of all cross-wind traffic at the airport. It is the primary runway for Bowers Field. Runway 7/25 is the remaining runway that served the airport during World War II. At this time, the County does not have a date removing the temporary closure.
