The Hillsboro Airport Runway 2-20 and Taxiway C Rehabilitation project involved the complete removal and replacement of the existing 2-20 runway, new construction of Taxiway C in a newly aligned configuration, and the construction of multiple connector taxiways.
GBI constructed more than 6,000 linear feet of runway and taxiway, performed all grading, asphalt paving, and striping, and installed perforated sub drainage on both sides of the runway. Additionally, we installed a new lighting system and new airfield perimeter security fencing and gates for the airport.
GBI rotated four crews working alternating 12 hour shifts to complete the intersection project in a five-month time period, including all demolition, excavation, aggregate placement, storm drainage system installation, asphalt milling, reconstruction, and hydro seeding. Work on the intersection began at 10 pm on Friday night, and it was successfully reopened for aircraft use the following Monday morning at 5 am. A second intersection involving an active taxiway was also completed with similar scope and timeframe.
In addition to the contracted work, GBI was responsible for the removal of and reconstruction of the 100,000 square foot apron at the terminal building where Intel stages two corporate jets. This work involved the complete removal and reconstruction starting after Intel’s last jet landed on Friday evening and reopened for the first jet departing early the following Monday morning. We also performed the asphalt repairs, seal coating, and re-striping of the airport’s 5,000-foot long Taxiway D.
