Airports

EagleLIFT has provided pavement lifting and stabilization services for some of the busiest commercial airports in the United States. EagleLIFT’s repair solutions are ideal for high-traffic facilities such as these because our approach yields time-efficient results that are not only minimally-invasive, but cost-effective as well.

Airport Pavement Stabilization

Poor base and subgrade soils can wreak havoc on a roadway or slab, causing a variety of issues such as cracking, rutting and severe pavement settlement. The root of the soil degradation could be caused by:

  • Improperly compacted soils beneath the roadway
  • Water infiltration through pavement cracks resulting in soil washout
  • Roadway widening that did not address soil conditions for new design
  • Heavier loads than originally designed for
  • Failing sewer systems underneath the pavement causing soil loss

 

Benefits

  • Zero daytime lane closures
  • Removal of remaining viable pavement and poor foundation soils is not required
  • Overlay to correct rutting can be performed immediately following the polymer injection into the soils
  • Extends the life of a new overlay
  • Our hydro-insensitive polymers will push out the water in wet soil conditions while still compacting and densifying the soil

Expected Results

  • Compact the loose foundation soils without uneven lifting of the flexible pavement to provide sufficient support of the pavement surface.
  • Continued injection into the soils can lift the pavement system if needed.
  • Lifting of the rutting is NOT possible.
  • Surface cracks will still need to be sealed by traditional methods to mitigate water infiltration into the system.
