Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) West Hold Bay (Phase 2)

Project Detail

TRACE provided engineering design and topographic survey services for the reconstruction of West Hold Bay Phase 2. PHX is served by three runways and a network of parallel and connecting taxiways which facilitate ground movement of aircraft. As heavy arriving aircraft traffic during peak periods used up available terminal gate capacity, there was an increasing need to have additional holding spaces for aircraft until gates became available. The construction of this project provided capacity for four Airplane Design Group (ADG) IV aircraft holding locations, and also accommodated five ADG IV Remain Over-Night (RON) parking positions.

The design was completed on a fast-track 60-day schedule including surveying, geotechnical investigations, and final construction documents. Our team’s design services included demolition of existing pavements, grading and geometric design of new P-501 portland cement concrete pavement and P-401 asphaltic concrete pavement, drainage improvements, hydraulic analysis and design of new storm drains and area inlets, utility coordination, conflict resolution and relocation design, blast fence construction, and area lighting improvements.
