The purpose of the PDX Taxiway T project was to reconstruct a worn out Taxiway for the Portland International Airport. Working around the clock, our crews and subcontractors put in over 18,000 man hours within a seven month time frame to meet an aggressive schedule; they succeeded despite challenging work conditions such as narrow work areas, stringent airport security requirements, and extremely tight FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) tolerances. Reconstruction first required the removal of over 65,000 square yards of asphalt ranging from 3”-20” deep as well as 1,200 square yards of concrete ranging from 6”-18” depths. Repaving the taxiway required the placement of over 10,000 cubic yards of aggregate base, 10,000 cubic yards of sand base, and approximately 30,000 tons of asphalt with an additional 1,000 square yards of concrete asphalt. Additionally, our crews installed over 5,500 feet of new pipeline, requiring 20,000 cubic yards of excavation, 3,500 cubic yards of unsuitable excavation, and 3,600 cubic yards of controlled density fill (CDF) poured.
