The southern taxiway was designated runway 12/30 between 2001 and some time between 2007 and 2009. During that time other changes in the base, like the four small domes east of Hangar 19, indicate a UAV project. I believe runway 12/30 was used for a UAV project that needed a runway independent from the main runway. Possibly hardware needed to be installed for guidance along the runway that would have interfered with Janet traffic etc.

This is just my somewhat educated guess based on circumstantial evidence at best.
