The rehabilitation project on runway 9-27 at the Greenwood County Airport was recently selected for a national award by the American Concrete Paving Association.
 
The project and its engineering firm, Michael Baker International, was selected for the 26th Annual National Excellence in Concrete Award for Airport (Overlays). The award will be formally presented at an awards dinner in December.
 
The project was funded largely through a $2.8 million grant from the Federal Aviation Administration. The South Carolina Aeronautics Commission chipped in $160,000, with the same amount contributed by Greenwood County.
 
The project began in October 2014 and was completed earlier this year.
 
As part of the project, Runway 5-23 was refurbished and reopened while construction on runway 9-27 takes place. When construction on runway 9-27 is complete, the airport will have two active runways. Runway 5-23 is the first runway to be reopened in South Carolina in more than three decades.
 
Three inches of asphalt was removed during the project and replaced with five inches of concrete.
 
“This project was a direct result of several years of planning and coordination between Greenwood County and the South Carolina Aeronautics Commission, the FAA and Greenwood County's airport consultant, Michael Baker International,” Corwon said. “This investment allowed for an upgrade in the County's infrastructure in an economic climate where having a viable airport is an important factor in development.”
