Airport Runway Resurfacing, Amata Kabua International Airport

The Republic of the Marshall Islands Ports Authority (RMIPA) undertook a project to rehabilitate the runway surface of the Amata Kabua International Airport. The project entailed milling the existing worn asphalt surface of the runway and overlaying with new asphalt. The resurfacing extended approximately 200 feet centered along the runway center line along the length of the runway from the end of the blast pad at the 07 end of the runway to the end of the blast pad at the 25 end of the runway. The project also included a turnaround area at the 07 end of the runway and all new runway markings. The project involved over 45,000 tons of asphalt and aggregate materials and required importing all asphalt production equipment, laying equipment and raw materials from Hong Kong, the Philippines and Korea.

The runway resurfacing project greatly extended the life and safety of the Amata Kabua International Airport by improving the primary landing and take off surface as well as providing fresh new runway markings for improved visibility.
