Togus Expanded Parking Lots & New Heli Pad

Work consisted of replacing the KC-135 taxiway between the hangar and the flight
line for Maine Air National Guard 101st Refueling Wing, known as the Maineiacs.
This included the construction of a helicopter pad and installation of four new
retention ponds for storm water runoff, under-drain and riprap. Additionally, five
new parking areas were constructed including 2,000 linear ft. of concrete sidewalks,
curbs and handicap parking spaces. A supplemental contract was added for
loaming and seeding of the areas surrounding the parking lots and helipad plus
planting in the retention ponds.
