Cleveland Hopkins International Airport Expansion — City of Cleveland
Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE) has undergone a $1.5 billion expansion program aimed at meeting greater travel demands and enhancing the local economy. The Master Plan called for a new runway (6L-24R); improvements to the terminal, parking garages and roadways; and a new de-icing facility and maintenance center.
Since the commencement of this program, KS Associates’ Survey Group has provided ongoing surveying, mapping and construction staking services for multiple projects related to the expansion. Thousands of man-hours have been logged toward facilitating runway and taxiway construction and relocation. We have also provided surveying services for the surrounding infrastructure, including road relocations, building relocations, and creek diversions to make the expansion possible.
The size of our Survey Group allowed us to deploy multiple crews on short notice. Crews performed work at all hours of the day and night as needed to survey during runway and taxiway closures. Our understanding of FAA security and safety issues are also important success factors. Field surveyors were subject to background checks for security clearance. KS project managers have been working closely with airport personnel to schedule runway escorts and closures as needed.

- Concourse C Apron Rehabilitation
- New Concourse D
- New Runway 6L-24R
- Runway 6R-24L Uncoupling
- Central De-Icing Facility
