Project Summary

The multiphase Runway15-33 reconstruction project included both the design and construction of full depth Portland Cement Concrete pavement and the crack repair; milling and overlay of the existing runway bituminous pavement. The project also included the construction of new paved shoulders; adjustment of runway edge lights and airfield signs; re-grading the safety area; full depth reconstruction of Taxiway H and a portion of Taxiway B; extension of Runway 19 and Taxiway A North including new edge lights and signs; drainage improvements; pavement markings; topsoil and seeding; and grooving the full length of Runway 15-33.

The construction schedule incorporated night work to minimize operational impact to commercial airline service. In addition to commercial service sensitivities this project also required significant coordination with the Vermont Air National Guard, Vermont National Guard, and Vermont Agency of Natural Resources, and on-going design efforts of two additional aviation design consultant firms working on projects that abut this one project. Project was designed to maximize pavement rehabilitation results and minimize the amount of time the primary runway would need to be closed for construction. Construction phasing efforts, and temporary displaced threshold marking, lighting, and navigational aid designs allowed the airport to remain open at all times during this project.
