association with DMJM, Aviation was responsible for engineering design of
Portland Cement Concrete Pavement (PCCP) at the Intersection of Runways
12R-30L and 4-22 at Wm. P. Hobby Airport, requiring removal of
approximately 14,250 square yards of 17" to 24" concrete pavement, and
6,600 square yards of bituminous shoulder pavement.
Design of approximately 14,250 square yards of 18 ½" to 24" PCCP,
asphalt shoulders and installation of runway lighting system. Engineering
design services included field survey, geotechnical investigation, design of
pavements for aircraft loadings using FAA Pavement Design Procedure, design of
the concrete pavement mixture to resist long-term deterioration from
alkali-silica reactions, readability studies to smooth pavements at the runway
intersection. Miscellaneous work included pavement grooving, marking, topsoil,
sodding and seeding. Construction of the project was completed in 77 days,
with the first runway reopening in 19 days and second reopening in 26 days
from the Notice to Proceed date.
