ENGINEERS REPORT provided by STEVE PETERSON, TALBERT & BRIGHT
The contracts for the Phase I T-Hangar pavement rehabilitation are in process. After discussions with the contractor it was agreed that the project will be pushed until the spring of next year. Once contracts are in place the contractor will be issued an administrative notice to proceed. This will allow him to start preparing submittals and coordinating subs contracts. A pre-construction meeting will be held early next year in advance on the notice to proceed. This will allow the construction to start as soon as weather permits.
The Phase II T-Hangar pavement rehabilitation design project is almost ready to get started. The grant for the project should be executed soon and then we will be able to issue notice to proceed to our surveyor and geotechnical engineers. This project will be designed and ready to bid for funding at the August meeting next year.
The design of the runway and taxiway lighting rehabilitation project is underway. This project will include installing new LED lights on the runway and taxiway. Also included is the replacement of the PAPIs for both approaches, the REILs on the 23 end, replacement of all signs and the distance-to-go signs. The regulators of each of the circuits will also be replaced so there will be a brand-new system at the end of the project.
The Report was previously distributed and is attached to these Minutes.
Chairman Cowling thanked the members of the Authority for their time and contributions to the Authority.
There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned.
