This project included clearing and grubbing of approximately 55 acres for the taxiway and borrow excavation area, relocation of two structures (tower and electrical vault), the movement of 380,000 CY of select borrow material, 51,000 CY of unclassified excavation, 412 LF of reinforced concrete pipe (15″ and 24″), 240 LF of 23″ x 36″ of arched reinforced concrete pipe, 29,000 SY of 6″ cement treated base, 27,000 SY of 12″ PCC pavement.
In short Eutaw’s scope on this project includes the demolition & removal of the existing Center Runway (13C/31C) at Columbus Air Force Base. The runway’s dimensions are approximately 2 miles long by 300′ wide. In addition to demolition of the existing runway, Eutaw was also responsible for excavation, grading, and placing the required stone in preparation for the runway to be re-paved. Also in Eutaw’s scope was installation of all required drainage piping involved with this project. See below for quantities.
