Ft. Lauderdale-hollywood international airport
About this Project
In 2019, Boh Bros. traveled to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to work as the paving contractor on the $64 million rehabilitation effort for Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. Boh Bros.’ scope included nearly $16 million in concrete paving and involved both the replacement of the North Runway and sections of Taxiway B. A strict timeframe and schedule made for a relentless pace of work. When the project broke ground, for instance, milling machines ran 24/7 for 130 hours, stopping only for fuel and crew changes.
The North Runway for the Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport was completely shut-down with a re-opening date set for mid-November. Boh crews met the schedule challenges and the runway was back in operation within the required timeframe. In all, Boh Bros. placed over 105,000 square yards of 6-inch P306 concrete and more than 88,300 square yards of 17-inch P501 concrete.

Avondale Marine Project
Boh Bros. assisted Avondale Marine in rebuilding Dock No. 2 so that Host can use the dock’s existing pile–supported ship ways to construct a suspended roadway. Once operational, trucks will be able to carry heavy loads from dock to land, and vice versa, as the roadway will have a 100-ton capacity.
