MCM Helps Battle Record-Setting Snowfall at Dallas’ Love Field Airport
On March 5, the city of Dallas received a record 3.5 inches of snow—the fourth highest snow total in March for the Dallas-Fort Worth area! The city’s Love Field Airport requested the help of MCM’s team to battle the historic snow storm.
MCM is familiar with the airport grounds, having previously completed the Love Field Modernization Program (LFMP), a $62.5 million project involving the replacement and reconstruction of the existing aircraft apron around a new 20 gate concourse.
Our services were called upon at midnight on March 5. In order to help the airport stay fully operational, we assembled our crew: Varsha Tiwari (PM), Derek Dodson (PSUP), Bobby Lambert (SUP), Erick Montgomery (FRM), Jose Galindo (FRM), Ines Guzman (FRM), Orlando Burns (FENG), Gus Ortiz Mendoza (OPR) and Jesus Fierro (OPR).
MCM worked throughout the night, using 3 loaders, a skid steer and broom to clean the taxiways, apron and gates, in order to allow aircrafts to be able to taxi in and out by 6 a.m. the next morning.
The hard work and effort put forth by the MCM team allowed Southwest Airlines, whose company is headquartered on the grounds of Dallas’ Love Field, to operate with minimal delays.
