LESSONS LEARNED DURING THE PLANNING PHASE JFK’s pavement-management-system-condition predictions provided the needed lead-time for planning, design and construction of a runway rehabilitation project. The pavement management system also provide information which helped engineers focus on which areas of the runway required temporary repairs in order to extend the runway service life until it was reconstructed. Having an up to date operational study of the runway proved invaluable. When the growth in air traffic operations led to delays, a conceptual plan to improve runway efficiency was already developed and ready for implementation.

Figure 4-2. 6 meters). 8 cm) dowels, 20-inches (51 cm) long, spaced at 18 inches (46 cm) on center. Pre-molded joint sealer was chosen for the joints due to their durability and proven performance at JFK. Concrete Mix Design The Port Authority’s Materials Engineering Unit developed and tested mix designs to establish specifications, which would result in a durable Portland cement concrete pavement that meets strength requirements. The following adjustments to the FAA P501 Portland Cement Concrete Pavement standard specification were developed: x x x x Graded Aggregate – See Table 4-3 Total Cementitous content not exceeding 550 pound per cubic yard (194 kg/m3), with a minimum of 40% slag cement Permeability ”1500 coulombs when tested in accordance with AASHTO T277.

The team elected to mill down through the existing asphalt sections of runway and uncover several locations of the old concrete joints. Samples were then taken and shipped for a quick analysis. The samples came back negative for regulated materials; had the samples tested positive, the team would have been forced to scramble to find a quick and reliable method for removal. Depending on the quantity of joint material, it could have easily derailed the project’s schedule and phasing plans. x During initial start-up, the FAA became concerned that the amount of equipment used on the project might cause interference with their navigational equipment.
