Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) on July 2,

15-month project to rehabilitate Taxiway A at Van
Nuys Airport (VNY). The work expands the taxiway's
pavement life by 20 years, enhances safety and meets new
This RON project serves two functions for our airport, "
said PHL CEO Chellie Cameron. " First, by providing aircraft
parking space away from terminal gates, our airline partners
can perform their terminal operations more efficiently. Second,
as PHL begins its West Cargo Development program, the
location of the apron provides quick access to cargo facilities
and our runways. "
PHL received a $2 million Pennsylvania Redevelopment
Assistance Capital Program (RACP) grant for the RON
apron. This state grant program is administered by the
Office of the Budget for the acquisition and construction of
regional economic, cultural, civic, recreational, and historical
improvement projects.

" Van Nuys Airport continues to demonstrate it
is the premier general aviation airport in the country
with modern and safe facilities that are among the
most emulated by peer airports, " said Justin Erbacci,
Chief Executive Officer, LAWA. " I want to thank our
project team and Van Nuys Airport tenants for working
collaboratively to coordinate the design, phasing and
construction in a manner that mitigated operational
impacts and kept the airport running smoothly. "
Rehabilitation of the 8,000-foot taxiway was
accomplished in 12 phases and included full-depth asphalt
taxiway reconstruction; installation of LED centerline
and edge lights; airfield signage and pavement marking
upgrades; taxiway geometry enhancements and infield
grading and drainage improvements. Ninety percent
of the project was federally funded under two Airport
Improvement Program grants.
TKH Security's Park Assist Parking Guidance
System to be Deployed at Fresno Yosemite
International Airport
TKH Security's Parking Guidance System (PGS) will be
deployed at Fresno Yosemite International Airport's new
four-level parking garage. Located in Fresno, CA, Fresno
Yosemite International is the primary commercial airport
for California's Central Valley and three national parks:
Yosemite, Sequoia, and Kings Canyon. Complete with the
M4 smart-sensor system, this parking facility will support
increased traffic as passengers return to travel, ensuring
an unparalleled parking experience from entry to exit.
Fresno Yosemite International, along with the DesignBuild
General Contractor, Overaa Construction, chose to
implement TKH Security's proprietary camera-based M4
PGS to help optimize space utilization and increase garage
efficiency by streamlining the parking journey. The smartsensor
PGS is designed to help parkers quickly locate available
parking spaces within the facility. This system utilizes digital
wayfinding signage and bright LED signal lights to indicate if
spaces are available and where they are located before entering
the facility, significantly reducing search and park times for
travelers and removing traffic congestion, confusion, and stress
from the parking experience.
