Past Performance - Heavy Civil

Air National Guard 162nd Wing Main Gate Repair

Project Description

This project was performed for the U.S. Air Force to reconstruct the main entrance onto the Air National Guard Base in Tucson. The main entrance was completely shut down for the duration of the project to allow for the removal of the existing roadway, curb, sidewalk, trees, landscaping and signage. The previous one entry and one exit lane layout was reconstructed to become a 2-entry drive lanes, 1 vehicular inspection lane and 1 exit drive lane with 2 guard stations. Signage and light poles were relocated to accommodate these new lanes. The new lanes were striped and included removable barricades, curbs, gutters and adjacent landscape boulders.

Scope of Work

  • Constructed two additional lanes, one lane dedicated to searching vehicles.
  • Installed two Delta Barrier gates to contain vehicles in the lane during guard inspection.
  • The new roadway was constructed with 1,200 feet of vertical curb, median concrete paving, sidewalks, concrete valley gutters and two cast in place structural concrete barriers for gate guard protection.
  • A steel canopy was erected over the entrance to shade the guards during vehicle entry.
  • All underground electric was removed, reconfigured and replaced to provide power for illuminated signage, gate power and lighting.
  • A storm drain catch basin was reconstructed into a manhole to allow the catch basin to be moved 18 feet awar from the new road widening.
  • The project was finalized with new striping and speed tables.

Project Challenges

  • Managed multiple suppliers, vendors and subcontractors.
  • Effectively managed on-site personnel meeting high quality and safety standards.
  • Simultaneous management of multiple phases with multiple disciplines and schedules.
