Runway Rehabilitation - Phase 1

Client: Kansas City Aviation Department
Completion Date: Design: 2014; Construction: 2015
Location: Kansas City International Airport


Burns & McDonnell is providing civil and electrical design consulting services for the rehabilitation of Runway 1R-19L and associated pavements within the runway safety area. The original Runway 1R-19L and its taxiway connectors have severe durability cracking that is becoming progressively worse and creating foreign object debris (FOD) potential on the runway. Phasing considerations for this project include development of a complex construction safety and phasing plan (CSPP) for rehabilitating these pavements while maximizing airfield operation access on the intersecting crosswind runway complex, including Runway 9-27, Taxiway C and Taxiway D, and maintaining access to the airline terminals and airfield overhaul base.
