The objective of the project was to correct multiple FAA safety “hot spots” and other areas of non-standard taxiway geometry to increase safety of the airfield. The project includes the realignment and reconstruction of Taxiway A which is the parallel taxiway north of and adjacent to Runways 8L-26R and 4L-22R. This project also includes the extension of Taxiway A to the west and 13 new crossover taxiways and 9 runway entrance/connector taxiways. Taxiway Z will be reconstructed with new taxiway intersection geometry. The existing taxiway pavements within the project limits will be demolished full depth. A total of nine construction phases were developed which included 29 subphases.
Shrewsberry provided airfield engineering design services specific to phasing including the following:
- Construction Safety and Phasing Plans (prepared in accordance with FAA AC 150/5370-2F criteria) which included aircraft movement simulations, barricade and jet blast deflector placement, open/closed runway and taxiway routes, NOTAMs, declared distance and gate restrictions
- Aircraft Movement Pushback Plans
- Temporary Relocated Threshold Plans
- Construction Safety and Phasing Narrative
- Jet Blast Analysis Plans utilizing AviPlan
- Airport User Briefing Diagrams
- Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam Ramp Parking Plans
Shrewsberry attended and presented at all stakeholder meetings with a Transition Working Group which consisted off FAA ATCT, FAA ADO, HDOT-A Engineering, HDOT-HNL Operations, JBPHH, and AECOM (Program Manager) in order to ensure all issues were considered and evaluated throughout the design and construction of the project. Shrewsberry also attended and presented at five pre-SRA meetings and a final Panel SRA Meeting.
