Samuels Field/Bardstown Airport Runway Rehabilitation and Safety Area Extension

  • Samuels Field / Bardstown-Nelson County Airport - Bardstown, KY

At Samuels Field Aiport in Bardstown, KY, GRW is providing design and construction administration services several important runway improvements projects: 

  • Runway rehabilitation. The improvements include asphalt crack repair, seal coating, and striping for fresh markings.
  • Runway safety extension. This project extends the runway safety area, a precisely graded area of ground at the end of the runway, to a full 300 feet, ensuring the airport meets FAA safety standards. Design for grading and related activities are included

In addition, GRW assisted the Bardstown-Nelson County Airport Board with funding from the FAA and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet for the projects.
