ACPA recognizes ‘Excellence in Concrete Pavement’
With a 150 calendar day schedule (including a 90 day runway closure), the scheduling for this project was very challenging
In addition to the traditional processes of panel replacement, there were also many other things that added to the complexity of the project.
Just a few examples include more than 450 in-pavement lights with 8 miles of conduit; 1,030 square yards of Cement-treated base repair; 37,900 drilled and grouted dowel bars; and spall repairs around light cans.
The project also involved 3,500 feet of drainage pipe, 10 acres of seed and mulch, crushing of removed concrete, and 70,000 square yards of pavement grooving.
At the peak period of construction, more than 300 people were working on the runway closure.
Seventy-two panels were added after the start of construction, but the work was still completed within the 90-day closure.
Thanks to the hard work and extra effort of everyone involved, D.I.A. has a restored facility that will provide many more years of service.
(SILVER) U.S. Hwy. 166/169 K-LINK 1R Resurfacing, Coffeyville, Kansas
Contractor: Bryant & Bryant Construction, Inc.
Owner: City of Coffeyville, Kans.
Engineer: Allgeier, Martin and Associates, Inc.
The K-LINK resurfacing projects were because they used a slightly different design methodology to establish smaller and more site-specific pavement repairs. This helped maximize the quantity of pavement repairs within the budget parameters.
After the bid opening, it was calculated that the project could be extended another 1,100 feet and remain within the original budgetary parameters. Since the original project limits could not be extended under the resurfacing program guidelines, it was necessary to create a second project number, which had to be designed and bid immediately.
