Imperial County Airport Construction Project Wins CMAA San Diego Award

ImperialCountyCMAA1C&S Companies are proud to announce that the Imperial County Airport bypass apron received an honorable mention from the Construction Management Association of America San Diego Chapter in the category of Transportation / Less than $5 Million. C&S was both the design engineer and the construction manager for this important infrastructure project that improved safety and efficiency at the airport. Imperial County Airport is a county-owned facility that supports primarily private general aviation pilots. They are a commercial service facility that features daily flights through Mokulele Airlines to Los Angeles International Airport.

The two-phase, $2.15 million project, removed existing aircraft taxiway connectors and signage and replaced them with new paved connectors that meet FAA standards and support commercial service operations. The existing taxiway end connectors did not meet FAA safety standards and posed a concern for the operation of commercial service mixed with general aviation and agricultural flight operations. A new bypass taxiway and holding apron were constructed to meet FAA standards. Finally, new navigational aids known as precision approach path indicators (PAPI) were added at all four runway ends to allow aircraft to follow a visual flight course to land.
