ENSURE THAT WE ARE USING THE “FOLLOW ME” PICK UP FOR ALL ARRIVALS DURING NIGHT CONSTRUCTION AS THERE WILL BE A STEADY FLOW OF CONCRETE TRUCKS ENTERING AND EXITING THE RAMP!!!
Monday, June 5, installation of the trench drain in front of WACS will begin. When the trench drain is being tied in to the existing drain at the southeast corner of the WACS ramp by the maintenance hangar, no vehicle traffic will be allowed.

If there is to been a rain event while working on pad 3 (Alpha Line,) will need to be drained. If this occurs, it will be drained into the grass area in between the ramp and taxi way.
The hose is durable. Our shuttle busses are okay to drive over the hose.
As of May 10, Blythe will be using a heat plate machine in front of the FBO ramp door to work on water damage as water is pooling at the front door.
Monday the 15th
Blythe will begin milling and repaving on the south side of the Family Dollar hangar. This project is scheduled to take three days weather permitting. Family Dollar has been advised to use the north side of their facility during this time.
The construction zone has been extended into the “A” Line and a 10′ travel lane has been created.
The follow me has been positioning itself on the outer edge of the construction zone near the drive lane. This is subject to change as construction progresses.
Be mindful while traveling through the travel lane as it is narrow.
Beginning Friday, April 28, the barricades will be moved west to close off the “A” Line, leaving a 10′ travel lane for our shuttles
Beginning Monday, May 15, the concrete pads are expected to begin being poured in all three pads. All three concrete pads are expected to be poured in 10 days.
The shade ports have been removed and can be used for overnight or long term aircraft parking.
Asphalt has been laid in font of the WACS building as well as new concrete
The doors to the lobby will be unlocked on Saturday 4/15/2017 for use.
DO NOT drive on the new concrete as it is not load bearing. Golf carts are the only vehicles permitted on the new concrete.
We will NO LONGER be using the VIP Room as an entrance/exit to the building as the Main Entrance is now open.
New concrete at ramp lobby doors has been poured.
Two asphalt test strips are going in adjacent to the new concrete entry on Thursday. If they pass inspection, we will open the ramp lobby doors for use on Saturday and close the VIP door.
The shade ports are expected to be completely down by Friday, April 14. This has changed a bit due to possible impending weather next week.
Effective Monday, April 17, the barricades at the western edge of the current construction area will be moved West so that milling can begin in that area. They will leave a 10′ drive lane between the grass line and barricades for our shuttles to use.
Aircraft storage that has been used on the “A” line will move to the “D” line. All stored aircraft are to be positioned as far West of the actual painted line on “D” to ensure that we are not blocking the nearby hangars. No aircraft are to taxi from the “D” line but rather will need to be re-positioned to WACN for departure.
We are still anticipating opening the lobby ramp doors up on Saturday morning, April, 15. Dave T. will be on site to take down the temporary signage in the lobby and close up the VIP entrance.
The new concrete at the lobby doors IS NOT load-bearing and therefore is not to be driven on at any time with anything vehicles. The exception is the golf cart charging area by the Dispatch Office but nothing heavier than a golf cart.
