Type of Facility Municipal/Government
Posted in NY
Location Buffalo Niagara International Airport
4200 Genesee Street
Cheektowaga, New York 14225
Estimate $4,800,000.00
Description The existing Terminal Apron aircraft overnight west parking area is enlarged to accommodate three Group III aircraft (Boeing’s B737-800/Airbus A320). Work includes constructing approximately 6,100 square yards of new FAA standard Portland Cement Concrete (PCC) pavement, provides for the relocation of Airfield Security Gate 1 and associated security fencing, relocates the Secure Identification Display Area check point including guard shack and comfort facilities, rehabilitates PCC pavement with full and partial depth repairs and new joints, installs new apron site lighting, and provides new Jet Blast Deflector Barrier.

The FAA funded three-phased project approach is implemented using two notices to proceed, Notices to Proceed (NTP-1 and NTP-2) as set forth in the Contract Documents. Work shall proceed in strict accordance with these documents and the approved project FAA Construction Safety and Phasing Plan. Project work will require a short-term interruption of Terminal Gate 1 operations and short-term lane closures on the airport circulatory roadway and airport perimeter roadway in the immediate vicinity of the project work. Additionally, airfield Security Gate 1 access will be interrupted to allow for the relocation of the gate and associated security systems. Stringent time restrictions apply for work within the Terminal Gate 1 work area, airfield Security Gate 1 relocation and circulatory roadway closures to minimize disruption to airfield operations.
