The Danville-Boyle County Airport is a small general aviation airport in Danville, KY. It originally opened in 1938 and currently serves as a critical component of the region’s transportation system. This year, the airport underwent a large resurfacing project. Nick Barker, Operations Manager, noted that it was a complete and total resurface of the airport’s runways, taxiways, and ramp.
Construction crews from The Allen Company took on the Danville-Boyle County Airport’s repaving project. Crews of up to 45 workers supported the project, which lasted for two months over the summer. They worked efficiently and safely to minimize interruptions to the airport.
Barker noted that the repaving project was needed. It had been over 10 years since the airport had worked on its surfaces. As a regional maintenance base, the airport sees lots of traffic from medical transport vehicles in addition to its standard owner/operator services. Having a safe and updated airport is essential to the region’s vitality.
The project was a success due to the men and women who showed up to get the job done. To learn more about working in construction and to see more projects like the Danville-Boyle County Airport, visit www.ibuildamerica-kentucky.com.
