Woodbine has awarded a contract to South State of Bridgeton in New Jersey, US for the Woodbine Municipal Airport Taxiway A Rehabilitation-Stage II construction project.
As part of stage I, which was recently completed, about 1,000ft x 65ft section of Taxiway A between Runway 1-19 and Runway 13-31 was completed.
The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) provided a funding $400,000 for this stage works.
Stage II addresses the second half of the taxiway consisting of another 1,000ft x 65ft and the work will include repairing cracks and reconstructing of portions of the taxiway that have failed.
The scope of the work also includes provision of an overlay of the taxiway with bituminous pavement and taxiway markings.
Woodbine Mayor William Pikolycky said: “We expect construction to start within the next 30 days.
“With these improvements, we continue to upgrade our airport facilities, setting the stage for the future demands of the flying community.”
NJDOT granted $338,913.06 to the Woodbine Municipal Airport from its FY2017 Airport Improvement Programme for this project.
Taxiway A, which serves as the only connector between the approach ends of Runway 1 and 31, is essential to the airport’s taxiway system and renders a vital role providing access to the runways.
Without this taxiway, aircraft departing on Runway 1 will be required to back taxi to the departure end of the runway.
