The Martha’s Vineyard Airport Commission last week officially awarded a $10.6 million bid for repaving the main runway to Lawrence Lynch Corp. of Falmouth.

Funding for the project comes from a $10 million FAA grant awarded to the airport last month and a matching $500,000 grant from the Massachusetts Department of Transportation. Work begins in the fall.

Commissioners also awarded $52,000 in contracts to McFarland Johnson for consulting services and re-bidding for the removal of an old well house on airport property.

The well, installed by the Navy, has been abandoned for years and is now contaminated with asbestos, according to airport manager Ann Richart. She said removing the well could release land for business park development, but a request for proposals (RFP) put out last fall attracted no interest.

Matthew O’Brien of McFarland and Johnson told commissioners that contractors were likely too busy at the time, and said he anticipates the new RFP going out in October.

The development of a car wash by Airport Laundromat owner Nicholas Catt on lot number 34 in the business park is moving ahead, pending review of water and wastewater impacts by the airport land use subcommittee.

Subcommittee chairman Peter Wharton said his group will make a recommendation on the viability of the car wash and whether to grant permission for construction at the next commission meeting in September.

A separate commercial car wash is set to open on the lot next door this month at the new Shell Station owned by Louis Paciello.

Commission chairman Robert Rosenbaum also said the airport’s amended $5.2 million fiscal year 2019 budget was approved by the Dukes County Commission last week.
