This project’s main objective and function was to provide a new, more durable, and better functioning runway and two high-speed taxiways. In six months, 300,000 tons of asphalt had to be completely removed by roto-milling. The millings were stockpiled on site and used throughout the entire finished product in the infield areas instead of bringing in new material, creating a strong aesthetic contrast against the white Portland Cement concrete paving. Crews also installed 72 mi of electrical conduit on the project.
