Back in apr/xa/07; we had a severe storm. A couple days after the storm; I was taxiing to runway 24 on taxiway D. I noticed that the last 100 ft of the taxiway was now very uneven. I advised ground to let airport operations know there appears to be some sub-surface damage to the taxiway. When I returned from my flight; I faxed operations a description of the damage. Operations has closed the section of taxiway D that leads to runway 24. Aircraft from the east north side of the airport are now required to taxi on and hold short on runway 11 to get to runway 24. I consider this a somewhat dangerous operation. Airport operations is trying to secure funding from fema or other sources to repair taxiway D. Meanwhile; a hazardous condition exists. April to august with no remedy is far too long for a hazardous condition.
