AKIACHAK AIRPORT RELOCATION
Location: Akiachak, Alaska
Completion Date: January 2012
Phillips & Jordan Role: Prime Contractor
Phillips & Jordan was contracted by the State of Alaska to relocate the existing Akiachak Airport to a new 236 acre site approximately 1.5 miles northwest of the community of Akiachak. The relocation was necessary because the runway and safety areas at the existing airport did not meet minimum length and width standards, the runway had become degraded, and overall airport was determined to be deficient in size for forecasted operations.
Work scope elements completed by Phillips & Jordan included clearing of 143 acres for the new airport, excavation of muck and borrow material, construction of an ice road for hauling borrow material, placement of crushed aggregate surface course, installation of bonded fiber matrix and corrugated polyethylene piping, and seeding of 22 acres. Phillips & Jordan also constructed two single bay snow removal equipment buildings, and installed medium intensity runway, taxiway, and wind cone lighting.
