Safety Improvements at Burke Lakefront Airport Complete

Cleveland, Ohio

Independence Excavating crews performed the site work for the extension of runway 6L-24R to the east and installation of 1.5 acres of Engineered Material Arresting System (EMAS) at the west end including 120,000 cy of site cut and fill, drainage, 120 acres of seeding, 51,000 SY asphalt paving, pavement marking and new navigational aid equipment and runway lighting.

Unique project features included an accelerated schedule completing work in one construction season instead of two and extensive subgrade stabilization requirements due to high water table from Lake Erie and previous use of airport property as a landfill.
