IOWA FALLS MUNICIPAL AIRPORT | APRON EXPANSION

Challenge:

The City of Iowa Falls tasked McClure to perform design, bidding and construction services for the expansion of the existing terminal apron. The existing apron only provided six tie-down stalls for itinerant aircraft, forcing aircraft to park on the turf during the peak agricultural spraying season. The expanded terminal apron included providing 14 tie-down stalls, more than doubling the previous capacity of the apron.

McClure Results:

With the limits of the apron expansion extending to the Airport’s only taxiway, construction work within the taxiway safety area was unavoidable. McClure developed a sophisticated phasing plan limiting the construction duration within the safety area to a maximum of 14 calendar days to minimize the impact of closing the taxiway.
