SEH worked with the Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) to reconstruct the intersection of two runways within the overlapping portions of the runway safety areas as well as taxiway reconstruction and realignments, and airfield signage and wind cone upgrades. Improving safety and operations of this facility plays a critical role in support and growth of the local, regional and state economy.
An aggressive construction schedule was necessary to minimize impacts to the airfield. The primary runway was shortened in both directions for landings and take-offs, but remained open for the duration of construction. By completing this complex project and including both runway ends, Runways 13 and 14, within the overlapping runway safety areas, it sets the stage for future phases, significantly reducing further impacts to runway operations during reconstruction of the remaining runway lengths for both runways. This project allows the airport to remain functional and operational while future construction is being done – a must for this busy metro area reliever airport.
