Crossfield Taxiway At LAX

Los Angeles International Airport

Los Angeles, CA

Royal Electric Company was a major subcontractor who performed the airfield electrical lighting/signage including taxiway centerline lights and guidance signs, high mass ramp lighting and construction of aircraft parking positions including power, water, and air conditioning equipment, construction of power and communication infrastructure for a stormdrain pump station, construction of a LADWP power duct banks (34.5 Kv & 4.8 Kv) and construction of LAWA power ductbank (34.5Kv) and LAWA communication ductbank, including major fiber optic cable relocation.

The project includes construction of Taxiway R which is the first taxiway in the United States to accommodate the Airbus A380 without Airfield Operations escort.

Challenges Faced During the Job and Royal’s Solution
Opening Taxiway R May 26, 2010. Without acceleration which required double shifts, 7 days per week, originally the schedule showed the taxiway opening June 25, 2010. The owner was extremely pleased with our efforts and the early taxiway opening ceremony was a big media event.
