Tulsa Riverside Airport Celebrates Completion of Major Improvements

Tulsa Jones-Riverside Airport

The ribbon is cut on $7M+ worth of improvements to Tulsa Riverside Airport.

  • Flying High: Tulsa Riverside Airport celebrated the completion of the Taxiway Alpha Realignment Project by hosting airport tenants, industry leaders and community members with a ribbon cutting ceremony. The $7.6M project removed older, angled taxiways and replaced them with right-angled taxiways that meet current FAA design standards.

  • Clear for Takeoff: Four connector taxiways were realigned and rehabilitated, with crews removing the top layer of asphalt and replacing it with new material. The new right-angle turn-offs help prevent faster moving traffic from rolling onto the parking area, given Tulsa Riverside Airport’s ramp is in close proximity to the runway.
