Southwest Apron Reconstruction

This substantial improvement to airport infrastructure consisted of the reconstruction of the Southwest Apron west of RWY 5. The new apron is approximately 55,000 SY, constructed with limerock base course and Superpave asphalt surface course. The work consisted of pavement reconstruction to accommodate the future aircraft fleet mix, reconfiguration of the pavement geometry to increase utilization efficiency, and associated grading and drainage design and construction. Performed new pavement design based on the latest approved ALP, FAA Advisory Circulars, proposed fleet mix, and other considerations. Prepare a detailed construction safety and phasing plan to increase safety and minimize disruptions to current operations. Coordinate with FAA pre-design through project closeout. Perform construction inspection services with continuous monitoring of the project schedule and cost.

This fast tracked project required a short timeline and extensive coordination to ensure on-time completion prior to the annual sun ‘n Fun Fly-in and Exposition.
