Long Beach Airport Taxiway K Phase III
Long Beach Airport is an active commercial and industrial airport supporting several commercial airlines and the Boeing Company’s C-17 manufacturing program. This project was to replace the pavement section of Taxiway K, one of the main taxiways for both the general aviation and commercial aviation portion of the airport.
The main portion of this project was to place P-501 PCC pavement on the heavily used portion of Taxiway K. With this, Sully Miller constructed asphalt tie-ins to live runways and asphalt shoulders. Time was of the essence to the owner for this project. Since this portion of Taxiway K was the main travel way for landing aircraft back to the commercial terminal, every day that it was out of service impacted the owner. With this in mind, Sully Miller expedited the work on Taxiway K and completed the project two (2) months ahead of the original schedule.
Sully Miller Contracting Company was responsible for the removal of the existing pavement and the earthwork associated with the construction of the new structural section. Sully-Miller also placed crushed aggregate base, cement treated soil and base and hot mix asphalt pavement.
The Asphalt Pavement was supplied by Blue Diamond Materials, a member of the Sully-Miller Group. The Aggregate Base was supplied by United Rock Products which is also a member of the Sully-Miller Group.
