Pavement Management System Program 1997 and 2002 For Upstate General Aviation And Commercial Airports

Various Counties, New York

This Pavement Management System (PMS) program inventories, assesses, and analyzes airside pavements to provide an objective and systematic procedure for setting priorities for pavement maintenance and repair. Program data will be used to prioritize funding of pavement rehabilitation projects at airports throughout New York State.

The scope of services included data collection pertaining to pavement history; defining the pavement network; conducting visual condition surveys; and establishing the PMS database and analysis routines.

Shumaker Consulting, Engineering & Land Surveying, P.C. (SCE) was a member of a design team contracted by NYSDOT to develop a Pavement Management System (PMS) for a number of different airports. Computerized maps were developed and linked to the PMS using a GIS.

For this contract, SCE participated in data collection for the pavement history and performed visual condition surveys at various airports located throughout New York State. During the 1997 original project, SCE drafted airport maps and linked those maps to the various pavement sections and ages.

Orange County Airport - Design of Signage Upgrade & Replacement along Runway 8-26; Taxiways C, D, E & F Lighting Upgrade;  and PAPI Installation on Runway 8, Runway 26 and Runway 21 Ends; Obstruction Clearance in the Runway 26 End

This project assisted the Orange County Airport to meet the sign compliance required by the current FAA standards. It will also replace defective, stake-mounted, medium intensity runway lighting currently installed along Runway 8-26. The OCA does not have vertical guidance on Runway 8-26. Precision Approach Path Indicators (PAPIs) will be placed on the Runway 8 and 26 ends. The PAPI placement on Runway 26 requires some obstruction removal. The VASI system on Runway 21 is currently dysfunctional and irreparable; it will be replaced with the PAPI system.

Shumaker Consulting Engineering & Land Surveying, P.C. (SCE) is responsible for all design, survey, and construction review tasks for this project.


Orange County Airport – Master Plan Update
The Master Plan Update consisted of an identification of existing and future airport requirements; evaluation of airport facilities to accommodate aviation demand, and addressed the Sponsor’s desire to continue to provide improved airport facilities.  Selection of a recommended development plan was based upon land use and air space considerations, facility requirements, environmental impacts, development costs, financial feasibility, infrastructure, access, economic development considerations, and community service requirements.

SCE provided an environmental overview to identify potential impact areas and provide sufficient information to allow for alternative evaluation and selection.  Following selection of a preferred development, an Airport Layout Plan will be prepared.  A financial plan will also be prepared, which outlines proposed facility development as shown on the ALP, and associated costs and financing.


PIN 1907.60 Design and Construction of Security Fencing, Signage and Electronic Gate System
This project will design and construct approximately 15,000 feet of security fencing, signs and gates necessary to make the airport compliant with the security plan that was produced in 2005. Six (6') high security fencing will be erected around the airport property, gates and signs will be added at access points. The project will also look at an electronic security gate system to further control access to the airport.
