Cherry Capital Airport Receives MDOT-AERO Award

April 17, 2018

Congratulations to the Northwestern Regional Airport Commission at Cherry Capital Airport (TVC) in Traverse City on its recognition as Airport of the Year by MDOT–AERO (Michigan Department of Transportation–Aeronautics) for its outstanding efforts associated with the rehabilitation and extension of Runway 10/28.

Prein&Newhof’s airport team worked for 10+ years with TVC staff, the Northwestern Regional Airport Commission, and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to complete the project planning for this runway rehabilitation and extension.

During the one-month construction, P&N was onsite around the clock — our team logged over 3,000 hours of construction observation and staking. Elmer’s Construction recorded over 35,000 labor hours in that same month. Its crews applied 40,000 tons of asphalt (equal to paving over 17 miles of a 24-foot-wide road) laid to FAA tolerances that demand pavement placement to within a
¼ inch of its designed grade.

Congratulations to Cherry Capital Airport on this monumental project and this well deserved award!
