Black Tower Aviation Regiment Road Repair
This project is located on the United States Army Installation of Fort Huachuca in the town of Sierra Vista, Arizona. This project is contracted with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in response to existing failing asphalt roadways and parking lots. The failing roadways were placing the unmanned aircraft traveling to Pioneer Runway at risk of costly damage. This project encompassed 14,000 square yards of new asphalt on reconstructed roadway and parking lots. WPC regraded and replaced rip-rap drainage swales, concrete sidewalks, concrete curbs, block masonry, landscape irrigation, landscape rock and striping and signage.
Scope of Work
- Remove and reconstruct 54 vehicle parking lots.
- Remove and regrade 950 square yards of rip-rap swales.
- Landscaping and planting.
- Remove and reconstruct 11,000 square yards of roadway that served as the main thoroughfare to the Pioneer Runway.
- Remove and reconstruct 2,300 square yards of a parking lot.
- The project team encountered unsuitable soil during the removal of the roadway. In an effort to maintain momentum it was determined the project would move forwards on a cost reimbursement basis.
- The roadway needed to stay open at all times which meant the area to process and finish material was limited. WPC completed this task with no impacts to the bus line or traffic.
- Effectively managed on-site personnel meeting high quality and safety standards.
- Utilized suppliers and trucking to allow around the clock work in a very limited time frame.
- Located materials in a remote area of Arizona suitable for the project scope.
- Working through poor weather and site conditions.
