Cyril E. King Airport Taxilane Reconstruction

Cyril E. King Airport Taxilane Reconstruction

Location: St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands

Client: U.S. Virgin Island Port Authority

Completion Date: 2007

Burns & McDonnell provided design and construction services for reconstruction of Taxilane E and the terminal apron taxilane at Cyril E. King Airport in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The project included approximately 24,000 square yards of existing asphalt taxilane removal and replacement with a new Portland cement concrete (PCC) pavement system. The project also included replacement of the existing taxiway edge lighting system.

The terminal apron taxilane is adjacent to the gates and required extensive phasing to minimize disruption to the airlines. The phasing was developed in conjunction with the airport, operations and airlines to only take one gate out of service at a time.
