What We Did

This project for the Charlotte County Airport Authority required the removal and replacement of Taxiway A. During the course of this six-month project, Ajax Paving laid a new, longer taxiway that exceeded requirements for pavement placement, density, and lab testing. Equally important, all tie-in construction was performed at night to ensure continued air service on the facility’s other runways.

The Punta Gorda Airport project won a Quality in Construction Award from the National Asphalt Pavement Association and the Special Project Award from the Asphalt Contractors Association of Florida.
