Portland Airport Runway Expansion

K&E and the Port of Portland have enjoyed collaborating and supporting each other on multiple transportation projects including the recent taxiway completion for the Hillsboro Airport. Our new $21 million runway expansion for the Portland International Airport (PDX) consists of the rehabilitation and reconstruction of three taxiways near the South Central Apron.

The effort is part of an ongoing infrastructure upgrade to provide greater overall air traffic mobility and efficiency. Project is expected to employ 120 workers, and upon its completion accommodate larger and heavier traffic—plus a larger volume of cargo traffic.


So far, we anticipate our biggest challenge to be the significant coordination required between sub-contractors to meet the aggressive five-month schedule.

"K&E’s  product was installed exactly to the plans and specifications and their flexibility in executing the overall project schedule was outstanding. This project required significant coordination with the electrical and H-pile installation contractors, K&E’s support in this area  contributed heavily to the success of the project."
