The evaluation of the pavement at the U. S. Naval Air Station, Imperial Beach, California is presented with the allowable gross load capacities of the runway, taxiways, and parking aprons for single, dual, single-tandem, and dual-tandem wheel assembly aircraft. Results of the evaluation show that the runway, most taxiways, and portland cement concrete Parking Apron 1 are being overloaded by the larger transport aircraft using the station. A visual condition survey of the pavements at the station show that pavement conditions ranged from fair to good with the average pavement rated fair. One 1,000 foot portion of the runway was in very poor condition, however, and was considered at the point of indipient failure. Author
