LOS ANGELES-Nationally-renowned infrastructure solutions firm HNTB Corporation recently completed rehabilitating the primary runway of the Van Nuys Airport with an innovative phasing model designed to expedite completion. HNTB implemented the $20.5-million project with reduced runway closures of 10 days and 26 nights for complete reconstruction of the 8,000-foot runway. The creative phasing model included partnering with stakeholders and developing a four-phase construction plan to reduce runway closures and airport interruptions.

“Collaborating with key stakeholders early in the process enabled us to develop a mutually beneficial solution and successfully execute the project,” says Laddie Irion, HNTB senior VP and national aviation market sector leader. “This approach is a model for airports across the nation on how to design maintenance projects with minimal disruptions to airport operations.”
