Memphis Airport’s New Deicing Facility Spotlighted in Airport Improvement
Kimley-Horn’s extensive work as the prime designer and lead civil engineer for multiple phases of the Memphis International Airport’s Centralized Deicing Facility project was featured in Airport Improvement. Aviation experts Nathan Lemon, P.E., and David Sparkes, P.E., discuss how the facility’s location will reduce taxi and holdover time—allowing for more efficient and cost-saving operations—as well as how innovative stormwater and glycol runoff management systems support environmental project goals. The new facility opened in November 2022, and its 12 deicing bays have already proven their worth, massively supporting the airport’s operations during a holiday season winter storm.
