Project cost


Century West completed the preliminary planning phase of the Port of Portland, Hillsboro Airport Runway 13R/31L Rehabilitation Project, which comprised the rehabilitation of 6,600 linear feet of the Airport’s main runway including shoulder and blast pad reconstruction, site grading, drainage upgrades, lighting and signage upgrades, NAVAID adjustments, and taxiway connector rehabilitation. Century West performed site investigations and alternative analyses to prepare recommendations for the methods and potential cost for the runway rehabilitation. As part of the alternatives analysis, Century West performed a Life Cycle Cost Analysis on the various rehabilitation alternatives identified in the planning process.

To prepare costs estimates for the anticipated work, Century West performed geometry analyses, Federal Aviation Administration standards checks, storm drainage analyses and condition assessment, pavement design reviews, and lighting and signage condition assessments. Century West worked with several stakeholders to gather critical information for the planning phase including Port sponsors, project managers, engineers, and operations and maintenance staff and airport tenants. Their input was crucial in the selection of alternatives for recommendation. The preliminary planning phase was completed in May of 2016. Century West is now in the 60% design stage for phases 1 and 2 of the four-phase rehabilitation project, which is slated for construction in the summer of 2019.
