American Airlines Arrival & Departure Ramps (Landside),
JFK International Airport – Queens, NY
The construction of a new at-grade Arrivals roadway and an elevated Departures roadway viaduct for American Airlines’ New Terminal 8 at JFK International Airport. Extensive maintenance and protection of traffic schemes were required to maintain traffic for the existing Terminal 8 & 9 during construction. Both of these roadways were opened on time to coincide with the opening of the new Terminal.
This project included the construction of the Arrival level roadway including asphalt roadway, sidewalks, electrical and communications lines, lighting, drainage, fencing, signage and VMS Boards. The Departure level viaduct was a completely new structure; its construction included piles, concrete foundations, columns, structural steel girders and a cast-in-place concrete deck. Nonstop coordination with the Port Authority and the contractors building the new Terminal was essential to keep our job on target.
