Rehabilitation of Taxiway A

The Pennsylvania State University Park Airport recently completed a feasibility study for the
rehabilitation of Taxiway A and is seeking a qualified aviation consultant to provide professional
services for the design and construction administration/inspection for this project. The feasibility
study report is enclosed for your reference. All work will be required to meet Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA) and Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) Bureau of Aviation
(BOA) Standards.

The total estimated project budget, including soft costs and contingency, is $35,200,000. This budget
is dependent on federal, state, and Passenger Facility Charge Program funding which may require the
project to be constructed in multiple phases and years. The goal is to design the entire project at one
time with the understanding that the plans and specifications may need to be broken out into separate
packages to accommodate available funding.

The goal is to start construction as early as 2020.
