As everyone knows, airport construction projects that take place during peak travel times often cause major headaches for airport operators and travelers alike. When Wichita Falls Municipal Airport in Wichita Falls, Texas embarked on the construction of a new terminal building in September 2013, they wanted to minimize disruptions to travelers by having the project complete before the beginning of the busy 2014 holiday travel season.
It seemed impossible, but Sundt and its joint venture partner, Trinity Hughes, are making sure the airport gets its wish – even with a recent $6.2 million scope addition. The new work includes the demolition and reconstruction of an existing taxiway along with a new apron to bring planes to the new terminal. Sundt’s own crews will perform the concrete paving work to ensure that the project is complete on time and to a high degree of quality.
Flights in and out of the new Wichita Falls terminal are expected to begin the week before Thanksgiving.
