Scappoose Airport, previously known as Scappoose Industrial Airpark, is Columbia County’s largest airport. It is the second busiest non-towered general aviation airport in Oregon with 60,000 operations per year and provides “reliever” capabilities to Hillsboro and Portland International Airports.
The Scappoose Airpark Taxiway B Rehabilitation project consisted of realigning the north 4,200 feet of Taxiway B. Our crews removed 24,000 square yards of old taxiway paving and hauled off 52,000 cubic yards of dirt for the new taxiway, connectors and a new run up apron. Over 3,000 cubic yards of the recycled taxiway was used for new subbase under 4,700 cubic yards of base course and 6,700 tons of new asphalt. Some additional work that was performed was adding 10,000 feet of new edge drain, as well as 1,340 feet of new culverts. To finish off the project, our trade partner, Colvico, added 208 new taxiway lights, 20,000 feet of new conductor, relocated existing signs and upgraded the controls on the runway and taxiway lighting to radio control.
