Port of Portland, South Runway Seismic Mitigation

GRI is currently aiding the Port of Portland in the evaluation and design of liquefaction mitigation for a portion of the south runway, which was selected based on a recently completed planning level assessment. As part of a collaborative effort by the Port of Portland, Oregon State University, and GRI, recently completed blast liquefaction research has provided critical missing information that aided the design team in providing substantial cost savings for planned mitigation. Seismically reinforcing a portion of the south runway at the Portland International Airport not only benefits the Port, but also benefits the region. Once complete, this project will protect critical infrastructure and aid in rapid response and recovery of the northwest after a seismic event.
