Rutland – Southern Vermont Regional Airport

 

North Clarendon, Vermont

Runway 01 Safety Area (RSA) Improvement. Southern Vermont Regional Airport is a general aviation and small-scale commercial airport served by a 5,003-ft runway and minimal apron surrounding the terminal buildings, and a localizer separated 470 ft from the north end of the runway.

The Runway Safety Area Improvement Project included the design of a new 50-ft-wide taxiway parallel to the existing 5,003-ft by 100-ft-wide runway to serve as a staging and taxi area, which was previously accomplished solely by the runway. The project included construction of a 600-ft-long RSA at the north end of the runway, which uses an Engineered Material Arresting System (EMAS) to safely arrest overrunning aircraft. This system resembles a runaway truck ramp. In place of a gravel or sand medium, the EMAS uses crushable concrete blocks installed on top of pavement at the end of the runway. This reduces the required length of the RSA by 40%. Due to the grade at this end of the runway, a 55-ft-high two-step mechanically stabilized earth retaining wall was necessary to reduce impacts to a nearby Class III wetland and to maintain a reasonably level surface. Project included relocation of the localizer. Design also included the connection of Taxiway D to the end of the runway. For this project, DuBois & King also provided permitting assistance for stormwater, construction stormwater, and Act 250.

Runway 19 Safety Area Improvement. Construction inspection services for the construction of a 600 ft by 400 ft Runway Safety Area on the end of Runway 19. Professional services include shop drawing review, periodic site visits, subconsultant coordination, review of change orders and RFIs, final inspection, preparation of record drawings, and updates to the Airport Layout Plan.
