Croy Engineering is the City of Covington’s aviation design consultant, tasked with completing a variety of planning, design and construction improvements to the City’s aviation facility.
Development of the SE Apron area, as designed by the City’s previous consultant, presented several obstacles including more than 20’ of cut in some areas, a potentially lengthy stream and wetland disturbance permitting process, and limited available funding. Croy proposed the development of an alternative area of the airport and showed how its development could be accomplished while meeting all FAA safety requirements. This new area could also be accessed from public roads and the existing runway without having to build the stream crossings, allowing the project to go to construction earlier than expected. Initial construction cost estimates prepared by Croy indicated that the construction scope of work could include a new taxiway, a large apron area, and two access drives from the adjacent public road.
