FAA RUNWAY AND TAXIWAY DESIGN STANDARDS BASED ON 500 OPERATIONS

Airport Runway Rehabilitation Project UpdateDanville City Council Work SessionAugust 3, 2010

1The Challenge: Accomplish needed federally-funded improve- ments to the airports primary runway while minimizing operational impacts and preserving important existing airport features. 2Current Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) design standards for airports with jet OPERATIONS similar to danvilles airport call for shorter, more narrow runways and taxiways than are now in place. To downsize Danvilles airport would significantly reduce its economic development potential.The FAA s capital project focus is on STANDARDIZING AIRPORT INFRASTRUCTURE rather than minimizing operational impacts during construction. The FAA should implement the Danville project in a fashion that sustains basic operations.Proposed Strategy: With assistance of the Congressional delegation and Commonwealth of Virginia, secure MODIFICATIONS TO Standard to allow for necessary improvements, minimize costs and operational impacts, and preserve current airport features.34

NARROW THE PRIMARY RUNWAY TO 100

NARROW TAXIWAYS TO 35 IN WIDTH

CORRECT LINE OF SIGHT OBSTRUCTION 2600

MODIFY DRAINAGE ALONG 5000 OF RUNWAY

GRADE AREAS OUTSIDE RUNWAY - 5500

REDUCE PAVEMENT STRENGTH TO 66,000 LBS

10OUR RECOMMENDATIONS TO IMPROVE SAFETY AND ACCESSA Maintain runway length, width and paved aircraft overrun area

B - Correct line of sight obstruction

C - Correct drainage adjacent along 5000 pavement section

D - Maintain existing drainage system for new pavement section that presently meets FAA design standards

E - Maintain width of all taxiways

F - Program funds to accelerate project

* Sequence construction work to maintain 3000 feet of available pavement
