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. The use of slag in the mix has the added benefit of reducing the PCC's carbon footprint.

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. In some cases, the FAA requested that re-grading not be performed so as to avoid impacting NAVAID surfaces and equipment. The runway width before reconstruction was 46 m (150 ft) of ACP (asphaltic concrete pavement) overlay on PCCP with 12-15 m (40-50 ft) wide ACP shoulders.

Tremendous effort was put in to develop innovative solutions and interaction between stakeholders was facilitated to achieve their buy-in. A project of this scale could not have been completed within the aggressive timelines without successful risk management. Actual project risks were identified through in-depth analysis and strategies were developed jointly by all the parties involved. The project was completed in 18 months and met all quality and safety requirements. The runway was commissioned in September 2008 more than 6 months ahead of the scheduled deadline.
