Lakeland Linder Regional Airport; Realignment of Taxiways H & J, Ramp Expansions and Regional Pond (FAA AIP 3110)


Taxiway H is located on the northwest side of the airfield and connects directly to TWY G on the north side of TWY A. This was the first phase in the realignment of taxiways serving the areas west of the existing terminal building. Also, TWY J (currently known as TWY G1/L) is the westernmost taxiway connection from RWY 5-23 and 9-27 toward the FBO and Terminal Areas. The primary focus of this realignment was to address the TWY G1/L/A bottleneck issues, what the FAA identified as a “Hot Spot”. From an operational perspective, the current alignments of both Taxiways H and J are seen as a problem area for both aircraft and ground vehicles using the airport. Controllers routinely identify these areas as a spot for potential runway incursions as they have direct paths across TWY A to RWY 9-27 and 5-23, continually having to keep watch over the direct north/south route through the active runway. These projects corrected these configurations. Also, terminal area ramp expansions were designed to accommodate the growing needs of the airport.

The project satisfied SWFWMD requirements for water quality and water quality requirements, creating one pond to serve each of the two taxiways (TWY H and J) being affected. Currently, there exists a series of stormwater management facilities to accommodate the TWY A system that was permitted and built under the AIP 16/17 (completed in 1998) at the airport. Since this existing pond will be affected by the TWY H realignment, those impacts will require equitable replacement volumes to current day SWFWMD criteria for the AIP 16/17 project. This newly shaped Regional Pond will accommodate the permitting requirements for both the TWY H and J realignments in accordance with SWFWMD criteria and also accomplish storage requirements for the majority of existing and proposed airfield improvements north of Runway 9-27. Scope included preparing grant applications, budget tracking, design, OAR, RPR services, FAA quarterly reports and recording drawings.
