The Scottsdale City Councilman will vote on awarding a $10.8 million contract to improve the runway at Scottsdale Airport.
J. Banicki Construction, Inc. is the city’s preferred bidder for the project.
The runway project includes “removing between 3 and 5 inches of pavement from the runway surface and then repaving it”, according to city documents.
“This project is more extensive and deeper rehabilitation than has been done in the past. It is needed to address the age of the deeper layers asphalt and will result in a new surface that will last for at least twenty (20) years with regular surface treatments and maintenance. We will also repave the shoulders and blast pads on the sides and ends of the runway. These areas are exhibiting severe cracking and will be entirely removed and replaced. Finally, the airfield lighting will be adjusted to meet FAA height and spacing standards”, according to project summaries provided to the council.
The council will vote on the contract at its April 20 meeting.
