Project info

After being awarded a contract by VDOT in April 2016, Branscome broke ground on a 3,000 foot x 75 foot drone runway on the northern end of Wallops Island. The runway is situated on NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility, which required Branscome to work with NASA, Virginia Commercial Space Flight Authority, and the Navy. This job called for the clearing of vegetation and trees, 40,000 yards of borrow, 6,000 tons of crush to crusher, and 6,000 tons of SM9.5A asphalt.
