Staff recommends approval of Work Order No. 17 with Hanson Professional Services, Inc. to conduct an Air Navigation approach survey for runway 13/31.
Phase I of the Runway 13/31 Extension Project has been completed. Work is scheduled to begin on Phases II and III on July 17, 2009. FAA regulations require that an Air Navigation Approach Survey for runway ends 13 and 31 be completed because the runway length has been increased. This study must be finished prior to the completion of construction, so that both runways can be open to air traffic.
The data collected in this survey will be used to develop instrument approach and departure procedures, certify the airport for certain types of operation, determine maximum takeoff weights, update aeronautical publications, provide geodetic control for engineering projects, and land use studies. In addition, the survey will provide touchdown elevations (touchdown zones) for both runways based on the new runway lengths.
The FAA Grant Agreement for the funding for this project is also on this City Commission Agenda.
The funding breakdown for Work Order No. 17 is as follows:
Federal (95%) $ 97,094.74
State (2.5%) $ 2,555.13
City (2.5%) $ 2,555.13
Work on this project will not be scheduled until after October 1, 2009.
1. Approve Work Order No. 17 with Hanson Professional Services, Inc.; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
The total cost of Work Order 17 is $102,205.00. Grant funding from FAA and FDOT is available for this project. The amount of the City’s 2.5% match is $2,555.13. This project is included in the proposed Fiscal Year 2009/10 Airport Budget. Work will not begin until after October 1, 2009.
