The Maryland Aviation Administration has specific requirements for concrete used in its taxiways and runways. According to the FAA, more than 50% of all airport improvement funds go toward construction or rehabilitation of taxiways, runways, and aprons. To protect this investment, the concrete used in the construction of these projects is designed to last as long as possible with minimal maintenance, while retaining the strength necessary to withstand loads from extremely heavy commercial and private aircraft. Machado Concrete Ready-Mix specializes in providing 700-flex concrete mixes for use in Maryland Aviation Administration projects, such as runways, taxiways, and aprons.
The thickness specifications for airport concrete application varies widely, depending upon the condition of the subgrade, the pavement’s anticipated lifespan, and the expected load. As a rule, new concrete runways at non-hub airports range in thickness from 9 to 12 inches. Hub airports, which must withstand heavier aircraft and more frequent use, typically range from 15 to 18 inches in thickness.

How to Order Maryland Aviation Administration Approved Concrete
We supply ready mix concrete by the cubic yard, the equivalent of 27 cubic feet. Each cubic yard is enough to fill an area 3 feet wide by 3 feet long by 3 feet deep.
To determine how much concrete is needed, begin by determining the surface area – length times width:
24 feet wide x 18 feet long = Surface area of 432 feet
Multiply your surface area by the depth of the pour in feet:
Surface area of 432 feet x depth of .333 feet (4 inches) = Volume of 143.86 cubic feet
Finally, divide the volume in cubic feet by 27 to get your volume in cubic feet:
143.86 cubic feet ÷ 27 = 5.33 cubic yards
