Runway Rehabilitation

Runway Rehabilitation

Location: El Dorado Springs, Mo.

Client: City of El Dorado Springs

Completion Date: 1999 - Runway; 2008 - Slurry Seal

Burns & McDonnell began working at this airport in 1999. The first project required Burns & McDonnell to assume the role of resident representative and project coordinator to resolve construction issues associated with the reconstruction of Runway 4-22.

Burns & McDonnell reviewed all of the construction information provided to the contractor and systematically redeveloped a plan to complete the project without additional cost to the city of El Dorado Springs. Careful coordination was required between Burns & McDonnell, the city, the Missouri Department of Transporation (MoDOT) and the contractor.

  • Construction phase services
  • Planning and design services

The runway was constructed to the standards and guidelines required by MoDOT Aviation and the Federal Aviation Administration. The completed runway was 3,295 feet by 50 feet. Additional improvements included reconstruction of the connecting taxiway, apron, taxilanes, earthwork and new Medium Intensity Runway Lights (MIRLs).

The completed project did not exceed the original contract value as established by the bidding process. Burns & McDonnell oversaw all construction and confirmed all testing results were within specification tolerances. The entire project was completed before Nov. 20, 1999. The impact to routine operations at the airport was minimal once Burns & McDonnell's plan was engaged.

Burns & McDonnell was selected multiple times after the initial award. Additional projects completed include:

  • Airport layout plan update
  • Slurry sealing all pavement movement areas
  • General consultation
