London-Corbin Airport Lands .85M in Federal Funds to Redo Runway

Two general aviation Kentucky airports have been awarded grants totaling nearly $11 million as part of funding announced by the U.S. Transportation Department.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says the Gallatin Airport in Sparta will receive $9 million to invest in grading and drainage work needed to build a new general aviation airport.

The London-Corbin Airport in London will receive $1.85 million for necessary runway reconstruction.

Construction at the Gallatin airport is expected to start this fall.

The finished project will include a 5,500-foot runway, full-length parallel taxiway, a terminal building, fuel system and corporate and conventional T-hangars. At the London-Corbin Airport, funding will rebuild the existing 6,000-foot runway.
