/ airports

With over 19,000 public and private airports in the US, it’s safe to say air travel is a major part of American transportation. More than half of all Airport Improvement Program funds go toward constructing or rehabilitating runways, taxiways, and aprons, making pavements a crucial part of keeping flights in the air. PGS is uniquely equipped to handle and mitigate pavement distresses associated with heavy, dynamic, and repetitive loading seen at these facilities, meaning less maintenance needs and fewer closures.

PGS Engineering:

– Pavement Management
– Site Investigation
– Pavement Design
– Expert Advice

Areas of expertise:

– More Durable, Longer Lasting Pavements
– Base & Subgrade Stabilization
– Reflective Crack Mitigation
– Rutting & Cracking Mitigation

FEATURED PROJECTS

Jackson Hole Airport - Jackson, WY

Airports
  • 100%

    Pavement Life Increase

  • 1/4

    of Reduced Maintenance Treatments

  • REDUCED

    Runway Shutdowns

Jackson Hole Airport has historically struggled with asphalt performance on their runways, averaging an effective service life of 6-7 years and requiring maintenance treatments every 2-3 years.

They turned to Pacific GeoSource to cost-effectively enhance asphalt performance and limit runway closures/disruptions.
Fast forward to today, the runway has lasted 12+ years and has only received ONE maintenance treatment in that time.

Through a few simple-to-implement PGS strategies the life of the pavement has doubled while the need for maintenance has decreased substantially.

USFS AIRTANKER BASE (medford, or)

The Medford Airtanker Base provides interagency support for wildland firefighting efforts in Oregon and California. It experiences heavy traffic, especially during fire season. Time is of the essence when fighting fires, so the USFS turned to PGS to help extend the life of their pavement and prevent maintenance shutdowns.

A longer-lasting pavement also means less money spent in the long run, leaving more funds in the budget for what matters – Keeping their communities and forests safe.

  • Increased Pavement Life

  • Reduced maintenance

  • Long-run cost savings

NASA (BREVARD COUNTY, FL )

Okay, this is not your typical airport… But it’s certainly cool.

NASA wanted to extend the life of their asphalt overlays and chose to use fiber-reinforced asphalt. They understand the value of using a small high-tensile fiber.

Pacific GeoSource was there to handle the details, ensuring proper application, dispersion, distribution, and construction.

Working with PGS is an easy way to improve the life of your overlays by 50% or greater.
