The most recent rehabilitation was completed in 1993. At that time, the existing HMA surface was milled and overlaid with an HMA surface course and the runway centerline and leadoff lights were adjusted to final grade after the paving. Nightly runway closures were used to accomplish the construction, with the runway returning to service each day. gov) 120,000 departures and 21,000 arrivals, the expected service life for the rehabilitation was 10 to 12 years. This is consistent with other AC surfaced runways at JFK.

All closed runway signs and taxiway signs were covered. AIRPORT OPERATIONAL AND SAFETY LESSONS LEARNED  x A lesson learned from this project revealed that operations had not taken into account having at least one of our main ARFF routes, Taxiways N or J, always open for ARFF access. When the contractor published their schedule, there was a time period with both taxiways closed. The Port was able to negotiate, allowing them Taxiway M for the duration (with ATCT consent) if they would change the timing of the Taxiway J closure.

The runway was reconstructed with the crown moved 8 m (25 ft) east of the previous centerline to the centerline of the new runway. The lateral safety areas, east and west of the runway, were completely re-graded to meet current FAA standards where possible. In some cases, the FAA requested that re-grading not be performed so as to avoid impacting NAVAID surfaces and equipment. The runway width before reconstruction was 46 m (150 ft) of ACP (asphaltic concrete pavement) overlay on PCCP with 12-15 m (40-50 ft) wide ACP shoulders.
