Eppley Airfield – Runway and Taxiway Projects

Since 2001, Hawkins Construction has completed numerous runway and taxiway pavement projects at Eppley Airfield. Because of adjacent aircraft operations, these projects are technically complicated, with stringent specifications and potential hazards from nearby air operations. Using specialized personnel and equipment, Hawkins has replaced more than 1,100 square yards of full-depth pavement with various different base course types, large-diameter sewer pipes with associated drainage structures, pump houses, FAA buildings, communication cabling, and runway and taxiway lighting.
