Kemmerer Municipal Airport is a Design Category B-II airport with three active runways: the primary Runway 16/34; the secondary cross wind Runway 4/22; and the tertiary Runway 10/28 which is a dirt surface. Both the primary and secondary runways are lit. The airfield is also equipped with an AWOS, Rotating Beacon and 100LL and Jet A fuel. Frequent forest fires in the Bridger-Teton National Forest make Kemmerer an ideal location for emergency operations centers, refueling stations, and camps. The airport serves as the primary medevac location for fixed-wing jets in a 50-mile radius, providing invaluable critical lifesaving evacuations. General aviation uses include visitors to the Kemmerer area for fishing, hunting, and fossil digging at nearby Fossil Butte National Monument, and frequent visits from transiting military aircraft. The Kemmerer area is home to several major Fortune 500 companies and corporate jets for these businesses use the Kemmerer airport to shuttle executives and personnel to their various operations in the area. J-U-B has been the airport engineer for the airport since 2013, providing engineering services consistent with FAA funding requirements.
The following project consisted of the Construction and Engineering services to complete a fueling system upgrade:
Jet A and 100LL Fuel System Project
J-U-B performed design and construction management services to install a new above ground self-service fuel system and decommission/removal of the existing fuel system that was determined to be an obstruction to the Runway Visibility Zone (RVZ). The new Fuel System, located at the east end of the recently expanded Apron, consists of a new Credit Card Reader and two new skid-mounted 6,000 gallon each 100LL and Jet A fuel tank fuel systems and all associated electrical, and fuel system equipment.
