The apron and taxilane pavements at King’s Land O’ Lakes Airport had reached the end of their useful service life, and the demand for increased apron capacity continued to grow. Becher Hoppe completed design from fall 2018 to spring 2019. Construction was planned to occur between Fourth of July and Labor Day 2019, but the start was postponed until late July due to contractual hurdles. However, when the project was able to begin, the project team hit the ground running. Within two weeks, the project was ready for paving, and was soon after partially completed and opened to traffic. The team-work between the Airport, BOA, contractor, and BH to reduce impact to airport users was exemplary.
