Canadian Rockies International Airport Runway and Taxiway Rehabilitation
Cranbrook Airport Services Ltd.
Pride Schropp McComb Ltd.
This project included the complete rehabilitation of the runway and taxiway of the Cranbrook Airport, which had last been paved in 1990. The project involved hot in-place recycling, grading, concrete apron removal, overlay, cold milling, paving and construction of catch basins and runway shoulders at the same height as the pavement. For this job, a portable asphalt plant was established at the site.
A major challenge of the project was to complete the paving within a tight six-week deadline, with the requirement that all work be completed at night starting at 9 pm and ending at 6 am. Construction began on June 1, 2011. Paving started June 27 and was completed August 5.
The project was successfully completed under budget and with no runway/taxiway incursions.
