Construction has been ongoing for a new taxiway M which will be located from the intersection of runway 27 (and what used to be known as 'K3') north; paralleling runway 1; to the approach end of runway 19. Problem is; taxiway 'K3' has signage marking the taxiway as both 'K3' and 'M.' yes; two sets of signs. Management has been made aware of the problem yet clear resolution has not been forthcoming; such as a memo; a NOTAM; or the like for communicating changes on the airfield.
