Many infield areas located in the north and south airfields of PHX are unpaved. The infields have loose dirt and impediments that are subject to erosion and displacement from jet blast occurring during airport operations. Additionally, several infield area grades are not compliant with current advisory circular criteria. Many utility vaults and structures require vertical adjustment to be consistent with final grades.
TRACE is currently providing design services for Taxiway A, E and F infield areas, which are within the Runway Safety Areas for Runways 7L/25R and 8/26. The goal of this project is mitigate FOD generation, provide better drainage and upgrade several utility access points to facilitate maintenance. The project includes construction of approximately 570,000 SY of new Asphalt Concrete pavement, drainage improvements including new storm drains and catch basins, upgrading infrastructure of electrical and communication vaults, environmental monitoring wells, sanitary sewer manholes, replacement of taxiway edge lights.
