Runway Construction Completed

December 1, 2020


Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort’s primary runway, 05/23, has been under construction since November 2019, and is now complete. Aircraft flight patterns will resume back to normal, with runway 05/23 being primary and 14/32 being secondary.

The maintenance conducted improved the proficiency, safety and readiness of our pilots and airfield operations. We appreciate the continued support and patience from our Beaufort community.

For information about aircraft noise, please see the Air Installations Compatible Use Zones (AICUZ) section on our website at www.beaufort.marines.mil/Community-Resources/. It is important to note that the decibel levels on the AICUZ map are the day-night average sound level (DNL), not single event noise. Single event noise can be higher than the average. For example, if you live in the 60-65 DNL zone, you may experience single event noises greater than 65 dB.

For questions or concerns, please send us an email at BFRT_JPAO@usmc.mil or leave us a voicemail at 843-228-6229.

“The noise you hear is the sound of freedom.”
