Huitt-Zollars has provided drainage work associated with improvements and expansion of Marine Corps Air Station, in Yuma, Arizona, which is a joint-use airport with Yuma International Airport. Drainage analysis and design included stormwater retention basins in the infield between Taxiway I and Runway 17/35, between Taxiway A and 8/26, and at the intersection of Runways 8/26 and 17/35 at MCAS Yuma, Ordinance Access Roads Phases 1 and 2 and the entry road to the Cannon Air Defense Complex.
Huitt-Zollars provided civil engineering services to improve drainage facilities at Falcon Field Airport. The project included 700 linear feet of slotted drain; storm drain inlets; 15,000 linear feet of 18-inch to 48-inch storm drain along existing taxiways and existing roadways; and grading of a large drainage basin utilized to retain storm water runoff from the airport.
The Gila Bend Auxiliary Field Runway functions as an emergency landing option for military aircraft. The project scope included construction of a new 1,000-linear-foot concrete touchdown area at both runway ends, mill, and overlay for the remaining asphalt pavement, and construct asphalt shoulders along the new runway pavement. The total runway is 8,500 linear feet. Aircraft arresting gears are installed at both runway ends.
This project includes the construction of 2,170 linear feet of Taxiway C to infill from Taxiway C at Taxiway C3 easterly to Taxiway C at Taxiway C4. Also included was the construction of asphalt concrete aircraft parking aprons totaling approximately 50,000 SY. Connector Taxiway C4 is a new connector taxiway between Taxiway B and project Taxiway C West Infill. The new connector taxiway will facilitate use of the high speed exit from Runway 8-26.
Huitt-Zollars provided engineering design services for a 60-acre air cargo/corporate hangar site development. This included the the design of the aircraft parking apron and connecting taxiway, the storm drainage system, water utilities, and sanitary sewer utilities. Huitt-Zollars was also responsible for the design of all landside facilities.
Huitt-Zollars provided engineering design services for the reconstruction of 4,100-linear-foot of taxiway and associated improvements. Three 150-linear-foot-wide connector taxiways provide increased width to serve the new larger aircraft at the site. Approximately 88,000 SY of existing pavement was replaced with a total pavement thickness of 52 inches. Work also included the construction of two asphalt concrete aircraft parking aprons, totaling approximately 40,000 SY.
Huitt-Zollars provided design for the reconstruction of Taxiways B, D, and North Apron at Ryan Airfield, a general aviation airport near Tucson, Arizona. The project involved designing approximately 12,000 SY of reconstructed taxiway and apron pavements, and the preparation of drawings for a new 35-foot-wide general aviation Taxiway E, including grading and drainage, and airport perimeter fencing plans.
Huitt-Zollars provided engineering design and construction administration for a new 7,800-linear-foot concrete runway, and reconstruction of the existing parallel Taxiway F South.
