Gateway Airport Board Authorizes Reconstruction of Taxiway Victor

Mesa, Ariz. – Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport Authority (PMGAA) Board of Directors unanimously approved reconstruction of Taxiway Victor, an artery into the passenger terminal and ramp areas, at a special telephonic board meeting. The construction costs are not to exceed $2,850,874.70.

“The rapid growth of passenger service at Gateway Airport has increased the wear and tear of our main service taxiway into the terminal area,” said Airport Executive Director Jane Morris. “This project will create jobs and ensure the airfield remains capable of accommodating commercial-sized aircraft for years to come. Additionally, passenger service will continue to operate efficiently during the project.”

In support of the project, the Board also approved design support services with Kimley-Horn and Associates at a cost not to exceed $49,516.63, and reconstruction inspection, testing and construction administration services at a cost not to exceed $300,351.67 with Parsons Brinckerhoff.
