Tilcon Wins Quality in Construction Award for Major Project at Newark Liberty International Airport
Tilcon New Jersey has won a prestigious 2012 National Asphalt Pavement Association Quality in Construction award for a major project at Newark Liberty International Airport which involved the rehabilitation of runway 4R/22L.
The project included the reconstruction of the entire runway, a runway intersection, construction of two new high-speed taxiways, relocation and reconstruction of three taxiways and rehabilitation of nine additional taxiways.
The work was completed during limited six-hour nightly closures and during 16 weekend closures of 34 hours each. Tilcon placed three different types of surface asphalt mixes and two base courses on the runway and used state-of-the-art equipment to ensure that all density, joint, grade and rideability requirements were met.
