REPAIR TAXIWAY 13A, ELLINGTON FIELD

LOCATION:  HOUSTON, TEXAS

CLIENT:  CITY OF HOUSTON

CONSTRUCTION COST: $500,000

 

The project included evaluation of the existing taxiway pavement based on field condition surveys, geotechnical borings, and review of previous NDT analysis.  An updated Pavement Condition Index (PCI) was developed.  Alternative repair strategies were designed using Air Force light load, mixed traffic criteria, and a life cycle cost analysis was made to compare alternatives.  The recommended alternative was removal of the existing pavement and replacement with a new concrete surface, stabilized base and lime-treated subgrade.
