Master Plan Update

Burns & McDonnell updated the master plan for the Higginsville (Mo.) Industrial Municipal Airport. The existing runway is 3,300 feet long by 60 feet wide. The master plan for the runway included lengthening and widening the runway to 4,400 feet long by 75 feet wide. The ultimate airport development changed the airport from an ARC B-I airport to a B-II airport.

Burns & McDonnell designed the runway and taxiway extensions. The project scope included a 400-foot extension to the north and a 700-foot extension to the south, 15-foot widening of the existing runway, new Precision Approach Path Indicators (PAPIs) on both ends, relocation of runway edge lights, new Taxiway C edge lights, and apron reconstruction. The runway and taxiway extensions included earthwork and grading and drainage improvements.
