Brampton-Caledon Airport Improvements ~ Sept 10 to Oct 30, 2018

Construction at the airport will begin the week of September 10th 2018, right after the Brampton Airport Day. The work should be completed by the end of October. The following is an overview of the work that is planned. Updates will follow, as they are confirmed.

BRAMPTON FLYING CLUB APRON AND ALPHA TAXIWAY REHABILITATION

Phase 1 & 2 ~ Alpha Taxiway

The week of September 10, 2018

This is the first two phases of the project. BFC is planning to close the airport to aircraft for 48 hours in order to complete this work as quickly and as efficiently as possible. Staff and members will be notified when the exact dates are confirmed. NOTAMS will be issued.

Phase 3 ~ Access Road Limit of Construction

The next phase will involve the construction of a temporary taxiway that aircraft can use to taxi to the fuel pumps from Taxiway Foxtrot.

The BFC Fleet of aircraft will then be moved from the main ramp to the tie downs to the east of the fuel pumps.

The contractor will then delineate the main apron work area with un-serviceability barricades to provide separation between the Apron and the Airplane Refueling area.

Phase 4 ~ Pavement Restoration Adjacent to Hangars

The contractor is required to complete the pulverization, grading and base course paving in front of the hangars (area that is highlighted in ORANGE) within 24 hours and then ensure that the area in front of the BFC maintenance hangars remain unobstructed throughout the duration of construction and airplanes are able to access and egress the hangars. The reconstructed area in front the hangars shall then be separated from the remaining apron area to be reconstructed using un-serviceability barricades fro the remainder of construction.

This will be the general direction for aircraft to taxi to the fuel pumps.

Phase 5, 6, and 7 ~ Construction of the Apron Expansion, Apron Culvert Replacement, Culvert Replacement and Access Restoration

During this period of construction there will be access to hangars 1, 2 and 3.

Phase 8 ~ Pulverization and Repaving of Apron

In this final phase drainage infrastructure will be completed. New aircraft tie-downs will be installed. The contractor will have 24 hours to put a final coat of asphalt  down on the whole ramp surface, in front of hangar 3 and entranceway to ramp. Fences, gates and disturbed areas will be restored.

The flight operations team will do everything possible to ensure flights and training proceed smoothly. We do not anticipate more than 2 and possibly 3 days of no flying possible. The closure period will depend on weather and on unexpected findings during construction.
