Baltimore/Washington International Airport, Airfield Standards and Pavement Rehabilitation

As part of the FAA’s Runway Safety Area Improvement Program, Baltimore/Washington International Airport upgraded its two primary runways and commuter runway to ensure compliance by 2015.

Burns provided engineering services for the airfield lighting and electrical systems design, which were required to accommodate the runway rehab.  The work included major rehabilitation to the safety area surfaces, pavement rehabilitation, and airfield ground lighting and NAVAIDS replacement. Between the two projects, 60% of the airfield ground lighting was converted to new LED systems, and 70% of the airfield signage was replaced with new LED signs.  Additionally, a deicing apron was realigned, which resulted in the installation of new glycol piping, and associated electrical and control infrastructure.
