Abstract : The pavements at Opa-locka Airport, Florida, were evaluated to determine their load-carrying capabilities relative to specific aircraft designated by the Tactical Air Command (TAC). An evaluation of the primary runway (9L-27R) and taxiway was not required. The runways, taxiways, and apron areas for which this investigation was made are evaluated as types B and C traffic areas. This assumes that these areas will not be subjected to channelized traffic and will be used as parking and taxiing areas.
