Gila Bend Municipal Airport, Arizona – DBA’s scope of work included:
- Sawcutting, mill and removal of existing AC and PCC pavements (approximately 18,600 SY)
- Removal of existing tie-down anchors
- Subgrade preparation
- Shoulder grading
- Placement and recompaction of aggregate base course
- Placement of new asphaltic concrete and 5” thick Portland cement concrete paving (approximately 557 CY)
- New tie-down anchors
The project also called for the construction of a raised, reinforced, concrete fuel island including concrete encased 2” diameter PVC ductwork for electrical distribution service, and new electrical pull boxes to service the new fuel pumps. Sustainable efforts were employed for the project by salvaging and rubbelizing the old AC pavement to be reused for the new aggregate base course.
The project was funded through the FAA using AIP funds and the lead designer was Gannett Fleming.
