February 2022–July 2023
The Taxiway EE Grading, Drainage, Paving, and Lighting project involves the construction of a new 5,000 foot long taxiway at Denver International Airport (DEN). The work has included significant grading realignment, asphalt paving of taxiway shoulders, and striping as well as the installation of new airfield electrical systems and relocation of FAA and Xcel Energy utility lines. Royal Electric’s scope of work includes the installation of 129 taxiway edge lights, 181 centerline lights, 195,000 LF #8 5KV airfield lighting cable, 14 6×6 precast manholes, and 11 guidance signs on new foundations. Additionally, Royal crews are installing a new and demolishing the old Low Level Wind Alert System as well as installing 44,000 LF of fiber optic cable and modifying the existing ALCMS.
Lowering the underground fiber utilities that feed the airport's most critical infrastructure presented a major challenge on this project.
Close collaboration between construction teams, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the owner through weekly meetings were essential meeting deadlines, enabling the successful completion of the utility cutover.
