Newark Airport Terminal B Frontage Protection

Newark, NY

Passenger Terminal B is one of Newark Liberty International Airport’s most busy and significant terminals. Over four million passengers and twenty international carriers utilize its services, contributing to EWR’s status as the tenth busiest airport in the US and the nation’s fifth busiest international air gateway.

With such a high level of importance, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey saw the need for extra security measures within the terminal, including a new barrier protection system with removable bollards at special locations, fixed bollards, and two electronically operated hydraulic crash gates.

Conti performed all security installations. The team quickly installed approximately 70,000 pounds of steel reinforcement and roughly 300 CY of concrete to fortify the strength of all bollard foundations.

Safety of both the public and construction crews was extremely important, so Conti implemented extra measures. These included barricades, plastic drums, portable barriers, signs, temporary lane closures and temporary striping, all to protect the public from construction hazards. Once again, the team completed a successful project, bringing an added benefit to EWR.

Conti completed the project with minimal interference to the thousands of pedestrians and vehicles that utilize the terminal daily.
