Spartanburg Downtown Memorial Airport
After the original bid in 2014, not one, but 2 rebids and a bunch of long eared bat. YES the Spartanburg Contract was awarded and construction began in July! This $12 million Runway Expansion has three phases spanning two construction seasons and consists of all aspects of construction. Clearing the 105 acre site, grubbing, installation of the new sewer system, and the 12’ Diameter Multi-Plate was all completed this summer. Currently, we are finishing up the cast in place headwalls and relocating the existing creek in preparation for Phase 2. Assuming Mother Nature cooperates and we anticipate she will, Phase 2 will begin this November. Excavation of 1.6 million yards and construction of six detention ponds will keep the airport crew busy through the cold months and most of the 2017 season - notice I didn’t say WINTER months!? To date we are 30% complete and our team is looking good.
