Lambert-St. Louis International Airport Taxiway Reconfiguration
Location: Lambert, MO
Client: City of St. Louis
Size: 2,000 SF
In 2003, Lambert-St. Louis International Airport – then the country’s 30th busiest airport – needed to replace and expand portions of its runway system to accommodate a growing number of travelers. Guarantee Electrical’s award-winning work on replacement of the keel section of Lambert Runway 12L–30R in 2004, landed the firm a joint position with Millstone Bangert Inc. to rework an existing taxiway to tie into a new taxiway and runway at the 1,850-acre airport’s southwest corner. CRD & Associates, Inc. served as engineer and architect.
To accommodate the airport’s busiest arrival and departure times, the Guarantee team worked over weekends to reconfigure a 2,000-square-foot section of the taxiway near an active main runway. Guarantee first disconnected all power to the section so existing concrete could be removed. Then it installed new lighting cans with associated conduit and wiring for taxiway edge lights, centerline lights and directional signage – meeting every milestone in the carefully orchestrated schedule.
