Daytona Beach International Airport
Daytona Beach International Airport is known as the “Gateway to central Florida.” Owned by Volusia County, the airport provides convenient access to destinations throughout eastern and central Florida.
Hanson personnel have provided services for several projects at the airport, including the following:
Taxiways Papa and Tango
Daytona Beach International Airport is the site of major flight training activity. During peak hours, the secondary runway functions at capacity due to flight school training operations, and the primary runway functions at near capacity based on itinerant aircraft operations in combination with commercial service operations, including jet activity.
Because the airport is listed among those with runway incursion problems, the Runway Incursion Action Team (RIAT) recommended the installation of a parallel Taxiway Papa to main Runway 7L-25R as a partial solution. Air Traffic Control also recommended the building of a partial parallel Taxiway Tango to general aviation Runway 7R-25L.
Hanson personnel assisted in the funding negotiations to obtain discretionary monies for the taxiways. Hanson personnel had a 30-day design window for Taxiway Papa and a 45-day concurrent design window for Taxiway Tango. The project team members used experience gained from the Florida Statewide Airport Stormwater Study to manage stormwater without ponds on the airside.
National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Assistance
The Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) for the airport and the associated NPDES permit required update and renewal/transfer.
Hanson personnel prepared an update to the SWPPP, assisted with permit transfer and renewal, and provided training to airport personnel, co-permittee training, and general tenant training in procedural controls of pollutants.
Declared Distance Assistance
The Part 139 inspection for the airport found discrepancies in declared distance values as well as lighting and signage problems.
Hanson personnel worked with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) inspector to resolve the distance, lighting and signage issues for the primary runway. The work was used as one of two examples of declared distance plans by the FAA inspector to illustrate proper application of the advisory circular.
Taxiway November Pavement Condition
The eastern section of Taxiway November was exhibiting multiple types of distress including severe functional and structural problems.
Hanson personnel conducted a pavement condition survey with full sampling of the entire affected section. Recommendations included removing and replacing the entire 4-inch surface course due to delamination between courses and material problems.
*Hanson personnel provided services on these projects while employed by a firm whose assets were acquired by Hanson.
