American Airlines Arrival & Departure Ramps (Landside),
JFK International Airport Queens, NY
>
DESCRIPTION:
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.

SCOPE:
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.
