Aspen/Pitkin County Airport will close from April 9 through June 7 next year for runway resurfacing with grooved asphalt. Other safety improvements to the airport will begin in the fourth quarter of this year, but these won’t involve closures. After the runway is reopened there may be occasional closures of a maximum of two days while runway markings and pavement sealers are applied. Check on Aspen/Pitkin County Airport status at
