This project encompassed design and construction phase services for the general aviation apron rehabilitation at the Raleigh County Memorial Airport in Beaver, West Virginia.
The existing pavement surface was displaying areas of moderate to severe surface and alligator cracking, with one area adjacent to an existing hangar suffering from settlement associated with complete pavement failure. It was determined that this area of pavement failure was caused by the deterioration and collapse of an abandoned underground fuel storage tank. The scope of the project consisted of removing the collapsed storage tank and associated contaminated material and rebuilding the area to existing grade. Once the tank was removed and the area repaired, the remainder of the apron was rehabilitated by a combination of selective pavement milling and replacement, and the application of hot-pour crack and joint-sealing filler.
The project consisted of approximately 11,500 square yards of select pavement milling, 1,500 linear feet of crack and joint sealing filler placement, 1,000 linear feet of full depth crack repair, 600 square yards of full depth pavement repair, and approximately 3,400 tons of P-401 plant-mix bituminous pavement. The project also included pavement marking and the installation of a concrete trench drain and various other drainage structures.
