Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) - Runway 6R-24L Addition
EGS was on the design team to perform a geophysical survey in the footprint of the proposed runway 6R-24L improvements at the Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW). As part of this study, EGS performed geotechnical soil borings as well as ground penetrating radar (GPR) and electrical resistivity imaging (ERI) to evaluate if karst conditions (sinkholes) were present within the proposed footprint. This was a highly complex evaluation that spanned 2 years and involved numerous design teams throughout the firm. As directed, EGS categorized each anomaly that was encountered based on their size, and their proximity to the ground surface. This investigation was completed in 2014.
