Engineering Design Technologies, Inc. (EDT) is the Prime Contractor for the drainage system repair at Barksdale Air Force Base (AFB). EDT is providing project management and coordination, data collection and analysis, design and construction management. This project involves repair/replacement/rehabilitation of the existing subsurface drainage system located on the east and west side of Barksdale AFB’s 11,800 FT runway.
The existing system is being replaced with new inlets and pipes, generally following the current configuration. The alignment of some of the pipe segments was under the taxiways or Runway. These segments will be rehabilitated using trenchless methods in order to maintain full operation of the taxiways and runway. The project also involved investigating and repairing sinkholes that had developed throughout the area.
