Taxiway A Rehabilitation. This four million dollar project consisted of the design and construction to realign the east 1,800-foot section of Taxiway A (Taxiway A1 to A2), rehabilitate the 2,480-foot section of Taxiway A between Taxiways A2 and A3, and the addition of a 400-foot long taxilane connector north from Taxiway A connecting to Taxiway L at the Magic Valley Regional Airport (TWF), in Twin Falls, Idaho.
The first phase of the project includes the realignment and reconstruction of Taxiway A between Taxiways A1 and A2. The runway centerline to taxiway centerline separation from Runway 8-26 of 512.5-feet, will be maintained, as the minimum required separation by FAA for facilities accommodating ADG-III aircraft is 400-feet between runway and taxiway centerlines. The realignment will eliminate an existing bend in the alignment north of Runway 26 and will connect Runway 26 and Taxiway A at a 90-degree angle. This configuration of the Taxiway A will allow for future taxiway connections to maintain similar geometry (90-degree) without unnecessary jogs in the new pavement. Edge lighting relocation and installation, sign relocation, markings, and drainage improvements are also included.
