PCC Aggregate Gradation The contract also included provisions that water / cement ratio and air entrainment requirements be met to qualify for flexural strength incentives. These additional mix design/specification requirements were approved by the FAA and included in the project specifications. The contract required that the PCC paving be supplied from an on-site plant to provide a continuous supply of concrete as well as to reduce the amount of trucking required on the public roadway system.

Thick PCCP. Numerous asphalt overlays and repairs were done in addition to the lengthening described above. These were completed in 1952, 1957, 1963 and at various times between 1972 and 2002. Runway 16L-34R and its infrastructure were completely reconstructed in 2009. The runway was reconstructed with the crown moved 8 m (25 ft) east of the previous centerline to the centerline of the new runway. The lateral safety areas, east and west of the runway, were completely re-graded to meet current FAA standards where possible.

A burlap drag finish was applied and liquid membrane compound used. An early entry saw was used to cut the transverse joints. A performance grade (PG) 76-22 binder was used in the HMA placed on taxiways. HMA with PG 64-22 binder was used for the shoulder and blast pavements. The 1 Sonsteby, O.

During Stage I, paving production rates peaked at 4750-cubic yards per day for PCC and 5000 tons per day for HMA.
