RS&H was selected by the City of Colorado Springs to provide design and construction phase services for the Airfield Lighting Control and Monitoring System in 2008, then selected to provide on-call engineering services in 2009, 2014, and again in 2018, which included design, bid and construction phase services. Projects included runway rehabilitations, apron rehabilitations, taxiway reconstructions, landside improvements, planning studies, and owner representation. These projects included pavement design, grading, operational phasing, airfield electrical improvements, drainage improvements, and other civil-related improvements. 

Under the on-call consulting agreement RS&H provided design, bid and construction phase services for the rehabilitation of Runway 17R-35L, an 11,022-foot long, 150-foot wide runway consisting of grooved asphalt pavement and 25-foot wide asphalt shoulders. The connector taxiways rehabilitated include portions of Taxiways A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, A6, A7, B1, C1, C2, C3, G, C5, C6 and C7. These taxiways vary in width (75-feet to 125-feet) and consist of asphalt pavement with 25-foot wide asphalt shoulders. 

This project included the following items: Mill/fill asphalt pavement rehabilitation; Seal Coat / Crack Seal of the runway and taxiway shoulders and blast pads; installation of new 25-foot wide shoulders on some connector taxiways; replacement of airfield electrical infrastructure associated with the project area including new edge lights, cable/transformers, guidance signs, and windcone relocation/replacement; PAPI replacement on Runway 35L; REIL replacement on Runway 17R; new pavement markings; and new backup generator and Airport rotating beacon.
