Laurinburg-Maxton Airport Runway 5/23 Runway Rehabilitation, Maxton, NC
ACEC/NC Engineering Excellence Award Winner
What used to be rated as one of the worst airfields in North Carolina, Laurinburg-Maxton Airport is now considered one of the finest general aviation airports in the southeast. LMAC’s latest project, the new parallel taxiway, was an exceptionally successful undertaking. Not only did the project team design a solution that brought the airfield into FAA compliance, but it also solved a serious safety issue to pilots. The client now has an improved facility that is safer thanks to its new taxiway; saves money with the use of LED lighting; and realized affordability due to creative alternative funding sources.
