Specialty — Glide Slope Land Clearing Hanscom Airfield

BEDFORD, MA — T Ford Company, Inc. (TFCI) was engaged by the Massachusetts Port Authority to complete glide slope clearing at Hanscom Airfield in Bedford, Massachusetts. The project involved coordination with three separate town conservation commissions, over one mile of erosion controls, forty acres of land clearing, and selected tree removals within adjacent private properties. Specialized land clearing equipment was employed in the upland areas, and portions of the stream channels were cleared by hand. Approximately twelve acres were cleared using a ground crew and aerial (helicopter) transport. All of the work was completed within an aggressive schedule of forty-five days within an operating airfield.
