The intial cut

A Japanese contractor with Nippo Corporation operates a concrete road cutting machine on the runway at Misawa Air Base, Japan, May 5, 2017. Once the line was cut across the flightline, more than 50 contracted workers flooded the flightline and began tearing up the asphalt. The two-month project will ensure Misawa AB doesn't need repairs until approximately 2026. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Brittany A. Chase)
