Milhouse served as the prime consultant providing design and project management services for the Rehabilitation of Taxiway WQ (charted as Taxiway F1), part of the Completion Phase of the Chicago Department of Aviation’s O’Hare Modernization Program. Taxiway WQ is an enabling project for the future Runway 9C-27C and was commissioned as Taxiway F1 in September 2012 with a total construction cost of $10M.
The project included the full rehabilitation of a 2,500 linear foot (LF) abandoned taxiway in order to meet FAA Design Criteria for Airplane Design Group V. The pavement design consisted of a combination of full depth PCC reconstruction and a bituminous pavement overlay of an existing portion within an adjacent runway safety area. The project also included replacing existing turf shoulders with 35-ft.-wide paved bituminous shoulders, installing energy efficient LED taxiway edge lights, providing drainage modifications, improving grading, updating existing signage, installing new paving markings, and protecting nearby utility infrastructure.
Milhouse was responsible for overall project management and provided design services for airfield electrical, pavement, grading/drainage, utility design, and construction phasing. In addition, Milhouse led a team of consultants who provided paving, drainage, and geotechnical support.
This project was completed on schedule.
