– Chicago Executive Airport Construction: Phase 2 –
On Wednesday, June 1st, Phase 2 of the East Quad Rehabilitation project will be underway. This includes the removal of the remaining grass island and bituminous pavement, and replacement with new concrete pavement.
Site access is the same as the first phase of this project, with construction traffic entering the apron near Hangar 16 on the east side of the apron. Flagmen will direct traffic accordingly and the contractor will give way to all taxiing aircraft in the construction vicinity. Contractor staging and storage will again be at the fenced grass area at Sumac Drive and Milwaukee Avenue.
Construction is expected to be daily, Monday through Friday, from 7 AM to 4 PM, with occasional work on Saturdays, pending actual progress, and any weather disruptions. Low profile lighted barricades will enclose the construction site.
– East Quad Rehabilitation: Phase 2 –
The process of removing the green area swale located along the north side of Kilo-3 between hangars 12 bay 4 and hangar 20 (just west of our building) is scheduled to also begin Wednesday June 1, 2016 and is expected to take about 30 days.
Everything should be similar to last year when 2 swales were removed and brought back to grade with a concrete surface.
Please take the following precautions during this phase:
Open communication will be a key component to safety!
Each flight department should either call-in or e-mail their aircraft movements so that aircraft may be staged appropriately. Contact information to advise of aircraft movement in the work zone is as follows:
No aircraft should taxi under its own power while workman and heavy equipment are present.
