Repair Flight Line Access Roads, NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center, Edwards Air Force Base, CA
Development One performed the rehabilitation of existing asphalt flight line access roads at NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center. The asphalt access roadways were severely deteriorated due to weather conditions at the NASA Armstrong Center. Work included:
- A portion of existing asphalt pavement was fully removed, disposed, and replaced.
- Other portions of the existing asphalt pavement were overlaid and slurry sealed.
- All new asphalt paved roads and parking lots were matched to existing alignment, street widths, and layout.
- All existing hand holes, vaults, manholes, valve wells, and survey monuments (utility infrastructure) were protected in place.
- Concrete collars were repaired where necessary.
- All new asphalt pavement installation required subgrade work.
- New asphalt pavement was sloped toward existing storm drain facilities (catch basins, concrete channels, dirt swales, etc.) to drain.
- Portions of the existing asphalt roads and parking lots were slurry sealed, grinded and overlaid, and fully removed and replaced.
