Runway Resurfacing Project - Updated August 13, 2020
The Biddeford Municipal Airport (B19) is undergoing major runway resurfacing as well as runway and approach lighting replacement in summer 2020. The airport is currently closed to all air traffic. Prior to filing a flight plan, anyone planning to travel via air to B19 should continue to check NOTAMS for updates as the project progresses.
Project completion is expected in mid-October.
Bidding of this project occurred from April 3, 2020 through May 1, 2020 at which time bids were opened publicly. The Low Bidder for the project is Sargent Corp. of Stillwater, ME with a bid price of $4,675,976.70. 100% of the project will be paid for through a Federal Aviation Administration grant awarded last year that requires no local match.
Draft Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Plan - Updated September 14, 2020
The City of Biddeford hereby announces its goal of 3.2% for Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) participation on Airport Improvement Program (AIP) contracts at the Biddeford Municipal Airport for federal fiscal years 2021 through 2023. The proposed goal and rationale are available via electronic posting on the City of Biddeford’s website at https://www.biddefordmaine.org/DocumentCenter/View/7821/B19-DRAFT-2021-2023-DBE-Plan.
Comments on the DBE goal will be accepted for 30 days from the date of this publication and can be sent to the following:
Ms. Jacklyn Marks
Gale Associates, Inc.
6 Bedford Farms Drive, Suite 101
Bedford, NH 03110
Because the City receives federal funding through the Federal Aviation Administration for capital improvements at the Airport, every three years it must develop a plan for utilizing disadvantaged businesses on federally-funded contracts. The Airport’s next three-year plan and goal are due to FAA no later than October 30th, and part of the goal-setting process involves allowing the public to review and comment on the plan/goal for a period of 30 days.
