The Civil Aeronautics Authority will not w»iv* compaction requirement-? on runway construction *t t!i« Frtwterick City airport* This was the answer given by a top CAA official Monday afternoon at a conference with city officials, consulting engineers and the contractor seeking a solution to difficulties encountered in grading and base construction operations at the airfield and which have been virtually *t a standstill since mid- July. Briefly, this is the situation: Specifications call for a 95 per cest compaction, with reference to runway base construction T. Edgie Russell, the contractor says it is impossible to meet thi* specification due to certain conditions over which he has no control. Kis difficulty is visth Runway Xo. 3. f Consistently wet v.eatner was given 35 a primary cause Two solutions were advanced-- serate or remove and replace the present fill. Will Cost City Either way. she City is faced u ith the outlay of additional funds. If the aeration, or drying-out process is followed, the City wzll probably Tempers Flare be asked to bear the equipment " charges during the required idle period. If the present fill should be removed in its entirety and replaced, the cost of such an operation would likewise fall upon the City. While the latter has been recommended as ultimately beinc the cheaper, in view of maintenance, the cost was roughly placed at a fiaure. in one instance mentioned a: £75.000 to 5100000 Despite the fact that Monda}'* conference lasted nearly five hours no definite conclusion was reached. Originally intended to include a joint inspection of the airport s-ite. the conferees assembled at City Hall at one o'clock and the session did not end until near 6 p m.- Several, including the CAA officials, left during the meeting They had inspected the airfield during the morninp.
