When the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport needed to replace the Runway 4R-22L centerline lights, a plan was put together that minimized impact on airport operations, which was integral considering one of the airport’s three runways was already closed for construction. The plan included replacing the old incandescent fixtures with new LED fixtures, which led to energy savings while upgrading the quality and lifespan of the lighting fixtures. Also included in the project was full-depth runway and taxiway pavement repair, 165,000 linear feet of concrete pavement joint resealing, 52,000 linear feet of airfield lighting cable, and new pavement markings. An “overcome all” clause allowed work on nights, weekends, and holidays, which led to completion in 55 days, well under the 75-day maximum.
