This project consisted of improvements filling of cracks, replacement of 3.5" of alspalt. Durning the process, new drainage structures and grading were done in order to replace old drainage channels from the safety areas of both runway ends. In addition, the project included the remarking and reddesignation of Runway 17/35 and 18/36 as well as the sealing and remarking of the runway.
Crack and Seal Runway 18/36 Rehabilitation
The Crack and Seal Runway Rehabilitation began on October 14, 2018 and completed November 2, 2018. Project Manager was Joe Sober with KSA and Construciton Manager was Charlie Bright with the Univesity of Oklahoma. The bid was awarded to Tri City Seal Company from Tuttle, Oklahoma.
Due to all the rain received in Norman during the course of the project, the timeline was extended out a few extra days. The Airport personel was hoping the two week time period would had been ample amount of time for the crack seal project to be completed, but since Mother Nature showed up with large amounts of rain during the project, the project timeline was extended. The airport remained open during the entire constructin project. However, runway 18/36 was closed due to potential safety issues.
The proposed project includes rehabilitation the parallel taxiway system at Max Westheimer Airport. The main taxiways to be rehabilitated are Taxiways Alpha, Bravo, and Charlie. Additional connecting taxiways A1, C1, Delta and Echo will also receive rehabilitation durng this project. These taxiways provide acess to both Runway and 18/36 and 3/21, as well as to the Terminal Apron and surrounding hangars.
This project will require comprehensive phasing and coordination between the airport, tenants, contractor and engineer to ensure that the airfield will be impacted as minimal as possible. The rehabilitation of Parallel Taxiway System to Runway 18/36 and 3/21 will be broken into three phases of work with the work starting in FY 2020.
