    1st Expeditionary Civil Engineer Group Airmen worked with Soldiers from the 372nd Theatre Engineer Brigade to place more than 12,000 cubic meters of concrete for a runway overrun repair project at an undisclosed location in Southwest Asia, April 14, 2022.

    The runway extension will better accommodate aircraft take-off and landing operations and provide extended mission capabilities for the 332d Air Expeditionary Wing.

    “The 557th Expeditionary RED HORSE turnover will occur at the end of May and a new crew will continue the work on this project,” said Master Sgt. Joseph Meehan, 577th Expeditionary Prime Base Engineer Emergency Force pavements and equipment project manager.

    This runway extension is slated for completion in June 2022. By the end of the project, over 100 engineers from the 1st ECEG will have had a part in this force-multiplying project.
