Fairbanks is doing it right now. They turned the taxiway into a temporary runway.

How does an airport go about re-surfacing its only runway?

One half at a time, lengthwise. Seriously, I've seen it done this way on a whole bunch of airports with only one runway and no suitable taxiways.

HXD was closed for 3 weeks about 2 years ago while they resurfaced & widened the runway.
