The runways at Dover Air Force Base will be getting a $98 million makeover in the next two years.
The massive project will force military officials to relocate the base’s 18 C-5M cargo jets starting next summer.
Solid concrete, which can be as thick at 15 inches, will replace concrete and asphalt.
At the height of the project some 100 to 120 workers are expected to be involved.
New lights and navigation aids for the flyers are expected to be added to the shorter runway while an old underground fuel line that runs under the runway is set to be relocated.
