Runway 3L‐21R Project at Detroit Metropolitan Airport

Connico provided a design estimate and construction administration for this project at DTW

Project Details

This project included the reconstruction of Runway 3L‐21R including associated taxiways. Also included are portions of the Runway 3L Deicing Pad (also known as P‐P Deice Pad) as well as a new centralized deicing pad that is being designed parallel with the runway. Associated utility relocations and storm drainage installations are included in this project. The existing runway is 200’ in width with no shoulders. The reconstructed runway was 150’ wide with 35’ shoulders. Associated service roadways were also included.

The Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI) gave this project the Envision® Gold award for sustainable infrastructure.

Complexity On a Grand Scale

Among America’s 25 busiest airports, DTW ranks at 17. Its size, its importance in the network, and its status as a leading international hub all mean that there are hundreds of elements that need to be considered when planning and executing construction initiatives.
