Mr. Bull informed the Authority on the progress of the construction. He stated there was some delay in lowering the water lines but he would be meeting with Mr. Tony Parrott, the Manager of Water Systems for Fayette County. The work should begin next week and be completed by January of 1990. There was a meeting held to discuss the need for additional testin9 to reduce pavement thickness. There is a possibility of sav1ng some of the stone base because the soil appears to be better than what the soil report indicated. Now that a portion of the runway is up to finished grade, the additional test will be done to its soil bearing capacity. This would help determine the use of asphalt verses concrete. FAA has determined that the use of the money would be decided upon by the Authority as far as the decision to use asphalt or concrete. to Mr. on a report Kelly daily r I \ r I"""""'j [ ~ -~~---'-~------~----'-._---------'--_._.~--~ Regular Meeting September 6, 1989 Page 2 REPORT BY WILBUR SMITH & ASSOCIATES continued The one thing not yet determined is the location of the electrical vault. A temporary vault has been installed and Mr. Bull would like the location to remain as the permanent vault. Chairman Good asked if the electrical vault was equipped to handle the ILS Control Circuits, the lighting and for the central system that will be put on there. Mr. Bull stated that the localizer would be off a separate source. He stated that it may be possible to run the power off the water plant. As far as hooking up everything else to it he would have to check into it and let the Authority know. Mr. Bull presented the next draw request from Wilbur Smith and Associates in the amount of $20,697.00 and Haygood Contractors in the amount of $106,721.55. The project is about 24% complete. Mr. Bull stated that the letter finally came concerning the approach on the north and south of the runway. The approach over the railroad tracks is the prefered ap~roach with FAA. So the Authority may not need to purchase add~tional easement but in order to have the back a~proach on the localizer the Authority will need to cons~der the relocation of Crosstown Road. The Authority will then need to purchase land from Equitable/Peachtree City Development Corporation to relocate Crosstown Road.
