Runway 12-30 is the Oakland Airports main commercial air carrier runway, accommodating all types of aircraft with the full 10,000 feet to utilize for landing and takeoff. Since the runway had not been repaved since 1985, and with estimated additional fuel costs of $35M for airlines to taxi to the North Field, time was of the essence on this project. This project involved the overlay of asphalt concrete, as well as airfield lighting infrastructure upgrades. This provided a safer operating surface for aircraft and helped maintain federal aviation standards.
Twining provided sample testing of stability beams, as well as monitoring in place density, utilizing a nuclear gauge.Back to Projects
