Client: Hartsfield Development Program

Hartsfield-Jackson’s Runway 10-28, which opened in May 2006, often has been called the most important runway in America. For good reason: Runway 10-28 — the Airport’s fifth runway — has averaged more than 100,000 landings and takeoffs per year. The increased operational capacity provided by the fifth runway saves the airline industry an estimated $260 million a year in delay costs.

Construction of the 9,000-foot runway began in 2001. The final cost of the project was about $1.2 billion, about $100 million less than originally budgeted. Runway 10-28 construction required more than 3.5 million work hours, resulting in more than 2,000 construction jobs and spurring economic development in metro Atlanta and throughout the region. More than $167 million for the runway construction went to small contractors and female- and minority-owned businesses.
