PROJECT DESCRIPTIONS & JUSTIFICATION AMENDMENT TO 12-09-C-00-SJT

 

  1. Improve Terminal Building (FAA AIP No.: 3-48-0191-031-2010)

     

    Description:This project consists of renovations and modifications to the existing landside terminal building which was originally constructed in 1955. This project includes the relocation of the passenger arrivals on the landside and opens up the baggage claim hall for improved access. The renovations also include updating and modernizing the security check point to meet TSA and FAA requirements.  The additional PFC funding will be utilized for a change order associated with an unknown electrical service feeder cable, rental car public area, and general aviation door for ramp access, associated additional construction materials testing, construction administration, and project representative.

 

Justification:  During construction an unknown condition with an electrical service feeder cable arose and rerouting the feeder cable was necessary in order to install a structural beam.  In addition to the electrical feeder cable, the public area of the rental car area to ensure ADA accessibility, a ramp access door for general aviation to ensure fire code was met, and associated construction materials testing, and project representative were needed to complete the project.  The result of this project will extend the useful life of the terminal and increases terminal capacity.

PROJECT DESCRIPTIONS & JUSTIFICATION NEW APPLICATION 10

 

  1. Wildlife Hazard Management Plan

     

    Description:This project will consist of preparing a wildlife management plan for specific threats to airport operations and public safety due to wildlife activity at or near the San Angelo Regional Airport.

     

    Justification:  Per letter dated May 22, 2012 from FAA Airport Certification and Safety Inspector after reviewing the wildlife hazard assessment determined as part of the Pat 139.337 a Wildlife Hazard Management Plan (WHMP) is required for the San Angelo Regional Airport.  The purpose of the Wildlife Hazard Management Plan is to reduce the potential for aircraft strikes with wildlife which pose a threat to public safety.

  1. Pavement Condition Evaluation

     

    Description:  This project will consist of preparing a pavement evaluation report of the airfield pavements at the San Angelo Regional Airport.  Pavements to be evaluated include Runway 18-36, Runway 3-21, Runway 9-27, Taxiways A, B, C, D, E, F, and H, Terminal Apron, and public areas of general aviation aprons. The evaluation will consist of identifying existing pavement conditions, remaining life evaluations, improvement recommendations to accommodate expected air traffic volumes, and determine published weight ratings for airside pavements.

     

    Justification:  Since original construction, the pavements have been rehabilitated with surface treatments to help preserve the structural integrity of the pavement. The Pavement Construction Evaluation will provide information pertaining to the existing condition of the pavements and allow the airport to plan for future pavement improvement projects. Keeping the pavement in satisfactory condition will enhance the safety of the airport by reducing the risk of damage to aircraft due to FOD.

  1. ARFF Personal Protective Equipment (Bunker Gear)

     

    Description: This project will consist of purchasing ARFF proximity personal protective equipment meeting the requirements of NFPA 1971 for the Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighting personnel at the San Angelo Regional Airport.  The gear being replaced is ARFF proximity gear that meets NFPA 1971 and has reached the end of its useful life.

     

    Justification:   This project preserves safety.  The existing ARFF proximity gear meeting NFPA 1971 is more than 5 years old and has reached the end of its useful life.  The existing equipment has aged and is showing signs of wear and tear. Purchasing new equipment that meets the latest FAA and NFPA standards will enhance the safety of ARFF personnel.

  1. ARFF Truck (Index B)

     

    Description:This project is to purchase an ARFF firefighting truck for Index B capabilities.  The ARFF truck will be purchase using FAA standard specifications and requirements. The new ARFF vehicle will enable the Airport to respond more quickly to the fire scene and provide the safest most efficient tool for the job.

     

    Justification: This project is to preserve safety.  The current ARFF truck was purchased in 2003 and is now twelve (12) years old.  According to AC 150/5220-10 Guide Specification for Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) Vehicles, on average, an ARFF vehicle normally has a 10-12 year service life.  The current ARFF truck has reached the end of its service life.  The vehicle is aging and repair and parts are becoming cost prohibitive to continue ownership and operations.

  1. Runway 18-36 Rehabilitation Design

     

    Description:  This project includes the design, environmental assessment, airspace analysis to rehabilitate the entire HMAC pavement on Runway 18-36. The pavement rehabilitation will consist of routing, cleaning, and sealing existing joints and cracks in the pavement. A seal coat will be applied to the pavement.  Areas of full depth pavement repair and surface repair will be identified and addressed. The rehabilitated surface will be restriped in accordance with the latest FAA requirements.

     

    Justification:  This project is to preserve safety and capacity. This project will provide a fully functional runway and extend the useful life of the runway.  Typically, pavements should be rehabilitated every five to seven years to preserve the structural integrity and to extend the useful life of the pavement. The pavement has begun to oxidize which will cause the surface course to become brittle and start raveling. Applying a surface treatment will rejuvenate the asphalt binder in the pavement and preserve its structural integrity. Joint and crack sealant is necessary to protect the underlying base course from water infiltration, which could lead to pavement failures if not addressed.  The development project is expected to begin within two years of the completion of the design work.

  1. Taxiway Reconfiguration Design

     

    Description: This project is to reconfigure connecting taxiways along Runway 18-36.  Taxiway C will be removed and a new taxiway constructed.  Taxiway E is an acute angle to Runway 18-36 and will be reconstructed at a right angle to Runway 18-36.  Additionally, according to the latest version of AC 150/5300-13, to prevent incursions there should not be direct access from an apron to the runway.  There are three (3) proposed islands that would require pilots to make at least one turn before having the ability to enter the runway.

     

    Justification:  This project will enhance safety by minimizing runway incursions.  A taxiway utilization study was conducted and it was determined that the recommended project will meet current FAA design and safety standards and improve airfield safety, specifically aimed at reducing runway incursion events.  The result of the project will provide a fully functional taxiway system that meets FAA design standards including required access, shoulders, turf along the edge of shoulders, signs, taxiway safety area, markings, and lighting.  The development project is expected to begin within two years of the completion of the design work.
