Burke Lakefront Airport Runway 6L-24R Safety Improvements

Independence Excavating 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 features of the project included an accelerated schedule with completion 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.
