The Airport Airside Operations Department and the Port Engineering Division implemented this
project. The project required the contractor to provide additional temporary barricades with
flashlights to delineate the temporary taxiway for the safety of the aircrafts through the
construction area. Airside Operations saw the opportunity to utilize reusable polyethylene
plastic barricades with solar power flashlights that would eliminate the need for disposal of the
barricades at the end of the project and replacing batteries on a monthly basis. Airport
Construction implemented the purchase of 125 of the reusable barricades with solar power
flashlights, to use in this project. At the completion of this project, the 125 barricades with
solar power flashlights were retained for use on other construction projects.
Results: solar lights enable the Port to avoid using 1,330 batteries during project construction. In addition, 80 man-hours were saved by not having to continually replace the batteries.
