Rogers Executive Airport Runway Rehabilitation

Rogers, Arkansas

 
          
 

Creative Problem-Solving

The only nationally classified airport in rapidly growing northwest Arkansas can now handle an even more diverse mix of aircraft thanks to ingenuity displayed by Garver’s Aviation and Construction Services teams. In rehabilitating Runway 2-20 at Rogers Executive Airport, Garver provided design services and developed a construction plan that minimized runway closure.

Runway 2-20 is Rogers Executive’s only runway, and its taxiways weren’t large enough to be converted to temporary runways during construction. So, after meeting with airport staff and tenants, Garver developed a one-time, nine-day construction plan that put up to 100 people on site. Thanks to the contractor’s commitment to the specifications and around-the-clock staffing, the project was completed one day shorter than the original plan.

“We overcame the challenge of an aggressive timeline with communication via daily site meetings and constant presence by Garver personnel to make sure everything was going smoothly,” said Aviation Team Leader Adam White.

The project included full reconstruction of the runway keel section, a mill and overlay of the remaining surface, full-length edge drains along the full length of the runway, and full rehabilitation of the runway lighting circuit, including new four-box LED PAPI systems. The runway can now service aircraft up to 100,000 pounds.
