Storm Lake Municipal Airport Parking Lot

Storm Lake, IA | Transportation

Overview

The Storm Lake Municipal Airport called on ISG to reconstruct its parking lots in accordance with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations and to improve stormwater management and accessibility.


Opportunity

In order to improve its parking lots, Storm Lake Municipal Airport needed to utilize FAA funding, which comes with a strict set of standards and requirements.

Solution

ISG worked with the Storm Lake Municipal Airport in Storm Lake, Iowa, for its parking lot improvements, which included the total reconstruction of the automobile parking lot and entrance road. The existing asphalt parking lot and entrance road was removed and replaced with 4 inches of granular subbase and 7 inches of PC Concrete. The project also included a stormwater detention/collection basin to treat and retain stormwater runoff from the parking lot before being discharged into the tile outlet. The septic outfall line for the terminal was in conflict with the proposed construction and was intercepted and rerouted as a part of this project.

FAA funding was utilized; therefore, FAA specifications, design standards and process were required. Access and staging was critical for users and visitors of the facility. This project greatly increased the accessibility and parking available for the airport as well as providing improved drainage and treatment of the stormwater on site.
