Update on Construction at TTR

As we reported earlier, there is a pretty large construction project going on at TTR. While I was there today within an hour I saw at least 10 loaded belly dumps with trailers enter the base via the "Rocket Road" and another 10 leaving empty. Some of the trucks bring material from as far away as Glendale via Hwy 168, 93, 375 and 6. Others bring material from Tonopah. This has been going on since January, every weekday. That is a lot of material!

After passing the TTR main gate the trucks go to the main building complex of TTR just east of the flight line and north of the fuel tanks. That is where I lost them between the buildings. I did not see any signs of construction around the runway or taxiways. There may be construction in the complex of buildings, but my vantage point was not high enough to be sure.

But I can say for certain now that all that material is going to a construction site somewhere around the main TTR base.
