Taxiway A&C North Reconstruction, Taxiway B, C, & T-Hangar Taxilanes
The Ankeny Regional Airport is currently the third busiest airport in the state of Iowa and provides private, corporate, and freight operation aviation services to the greater Des Moines area and Polk County. The Airport wanted to further its mission of providing safe and accessible aircraft accommodations to the surrounding community and tasked McClure with the reconstruction and rehabilitation of Taxiways A, B, C, and seven T-Hangar taxilanes serving T-Hangars A-K.
The scope of the project includes removing and replacing the existing concrete pavement of Taxiway A and C North with 8 inches of PCC pavement underlain with 6 inches of aggregate base course placed on 12 inches of cement treated subgrade. Edge lights affected by new pavement construction and updates to fillet geometry are being salvaged and re-installed on new bases. Taxiways B, C, & T-Hangar Taxilanes are being rehabilitated using partial depth and full depth PCC patching and slab replacement methods.
