Sand Point Airport Realignment - Sand Point, AK

Mr. Pannone provided engineering services for the realignment of the Sand Point runway. This project was broken into three separate projects to ease funding requirements. The first phase included the removal of an obstruction and placing 200,000 cubic yards of material in onshore locations. The second phases consisted of the removal of a second obstruction and of placing 300,000 cubic yards of material offshore to produce the core fill for the future runway. The project also included placing slope protection on the marine fill. The third phase included placing 100,000 cubic yards of material to complete the core fill for the future runway, placing slope protection on the northern and southern ends of the runway safety area; construction of a paved runway, taxiway, and air carrier apron; and the upgrade of airport lighting. The completed project met current FAA safety standards for a Class C-III Airport. In addition to preparing the construction documents, Mr. Pannone assisted in the updating of the Airport Layout Plan, Terminal Area Plan, Property Plan, and Property Plat. The volume calculations and preliminary airport layout was performed using the surface modeling program MOSS. (Reference: Mr. Robert Juettner, City of Sand Point/Aleutians East Borough (907) 274-7555)
