CONSTRUCTION PHASING PLAN
OPERATIONAL SAFETY ON THE AIRFIELD DURING CONSTRUCTION
A15.1. Contents. A construction-phasing plan should be included in the contract documents. The
purpose of a phasing plan is to establish guidelines and constraints the contractor must follow during

A15.3.1. Phasing. All construction activities will be separated into phases. The phasing plan will
show or describe the sequence of construction activity for each phase. The phasing plan will be
incorporated into the contractor's management plan and reflected in the progress schedule. The work
area limits, barricade, and temporary fencing requirements will be clearly delineated for each phase.
The work area limits should include identification of restricted areas requiring escorts and free zones
with secure areas.
A15.3.2. Aircraft Operational Areas. The phasing plan will identify active aircraft operational areas
and closed pavement areas for each phase.
A15.3.3. Additional Requirements. If required, the location of flagmen, security guards, and other
personnel should be shown. These locations should be supplemented in the specifications.
A15.3.4. Temporary Displaced Thresholds. Temporary displaced thresholds and temporary displaced
threshold lighting requirements should be shown. These details will be presented in the drawings and
supplemented in the specifications.
A15.3.5. Access. Construction vehicle access roads, including access gates and haul routes, will be

for Marking Airfields, AFI 32-1044, Visual Air Navigation Systems, and TM 5-811-5, Army Aviation
A15.3.7. Safety Requirements and Procedures. A section on safety on the airfield during the planned
period of construction activity.
