Garver aviation planners completed a feasibility study of the intersecting taxiways and holding bays at the Runway 20C end. This included analyzing operations by scheduled air carriers, cargo carriers, general aviation, and military traffic to identify the most feasible taxiway layout to support the myriad of existing operations as well as those anticipated in the future.
Garver analyzed the taxiway configuration at the 20C end and developed four alternatives to the current configuration, which resulted in the airport selecting Garver's recommended option that balanced construction costs with improved taxiing routes and aircraft hold positions. Complicating this analysis was an additional taxiway, Taxiway Uniform, which needed to be converted to a non-movement area. This in turn put additional general aviation and military traffic onto taxiways T4 and Sierra. Garver also completed a line-of-sight study for the air traffic control tower.
The feasibility study resulted in redesigning the taxiway intersection and holding bay at the Runway 20C end, which creates a more efficient operational situation.
