Now embarking on the most significant modernization project in its more than 80-year history, the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport is not only placing itself in a position to meet the ever-changing demands of passengers, but also to improve security throughout the facility. The $201.6 million modernization project is intended to not only increase passenger convenience and efficiency, but also encourage airlines to add new, non-stop flights.

Sometimes, the final touch that can help distinguish a structure is the last coat of paint. That addition of color can make it far more memorable, or even help restore an aged structure to its original glory. And that is what Abhe & Svoboda Inc. strives to do in its work.

RoadSafe Traffic Systems Inc. may be a national company with 30 offices from coast to coast, but Senior Vice President Kathi Holst explains that each office is fully trained in its local nuances. “We can be as similar in our branch operations as states are in their specifications and regulations, which they are not,” Holst says. “If every department of transportation did things the same way, then we could also. But they don’t, so we need to be flexible and virtual and pretty fluid to move where we need to move and go where we need to go.”

As a major international transportation hub, it has been crucial for the Miami International Airport (MIA) to build, expand and renovate in order to better serve the thousands of passengers travelling through its grounds each day. As the airport has steadily moved its way into a new, more efficient facility it has benefitted from partnering with some of the most reliable names in architecture, engineering and construction contracting across the globe – one of those names being the Florida-based Munilla Construction Management LLC (MCM).

Major infrastructure projects are nothing new at A.B. Won Pat International Airport in Guam – over the last 30 years, the airport has seen the construction of an international air terminal and a major expansion project. The third and current air terminal facility was completed in 1998 at a cost of $271 million funded by the sale of general revenue bonds. This airport facility remains the largest capital improvement project ever done on Guam.

With more than 60 years of industry experience, it is no wonder Flatiron Construction Corp. has become the second-largest bridge builder and one of the leading transportation contractors in the nation. The company as a whole has an annual construction volume of more than $1 billion, completing projects in virtually every region of the United States.

Building a two-mile stretch of a four-lane parkway with a flyover to replace an existing two-lane road in only 18 months can cause a lot of traffic rerouting. With that in mind, Ames Construction Inc. of Burnsville, Minn., is employing several techniques to provide community outreach while working on the Milton E. Parkway in Colorado Springs, Colo. “We have our own public information manager on-site,” Project Manager Paul Gallagher points out.
