Airport Construction

Bremerton National Airport (KPWT)

Check the airport’s Notices to Airmen (NOTAMs) frequently for the latest airport configuration.

Multiple 2022 Airport Construction Projects Commence on April 25

This summer will bring three separate airport construction projects to Bremerton National Airport, each with its own set of operational impacts on PWT flight operations. Please refer to the attached PowerPoint for an overview of each project, the expected timelines, and specific operational effects during each construction phase.

Please also refer to the attached Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) document for the questions and answers discussed at the Pilot-Tenant Presentation on March 29.

This page and the FAQs document will be updated frequently throughout the entire construction period. Bookmark this website page for future quick reference.

Upon request, and to ensure widespread awareness, I will happily deliver the project presentation overview in person (live or virtually) to groups.

Pilots, Please Note: Check the airport’s Notices to Airmen (NOTAMs) frequently for the latest airport configuration. A design constraint of the airport’s AWOS-3 transcribed weather broadcast system on VHF 121.2 prevents verbally appending NOTAMs to the transmission. Do NOT rely on the AWOS-3 broadcast for NOTAMs information. They won’t be there.

TR/AR Project Phase 1 – April 25 - May 27, 2022

The Bremerton National Airport TR/AR Project kicks off Monday, April 25, and will continue through August 15 in four phases.

  • Phase 1 runs from April 25-May 27.
  • This first phase will close “Work Area 5 (WA 5),” the North Aircraft Parking Apron, aka the North Ramp (purple area depicted in the "TR/AR Project Work Areas" document on this page.)

Phase 1 operational impacts:

  • The runway, Taxiway A, and all runway-taxiway connectors will be open and available.
  • NOTAM 04/011 has been issued effective April 25: Taxiway A3 will be closed between Taxiway A and the North Ramp.
  • NOTAM 04/012 has been issued effective April 25: The North Ramp will be closed. (All tiedown aircraft on this ramp will be relocated.)
  • For hangar tenants north of Gate 1, all to/from airside hangar access will be via the north corporate ramp and the unnamed “diagonal” taxiway that leads to Taxiway A.
  • Exercise significant caution for personnel and adequate wingtip clearance when taxiing adjacent to the Airlift NW helipad.
  • Access to the private Jet A fuel facility will not be affected.
  • While Gate 1 will remain available for vehicle ramp access, only a single driving lane will be open. Use Gate 12 as the preferred entry access point.
  • Gate 1 will be restricted when planned drainage improvements are being made in its vicinity. Those specific dates within Phase 1 have not yet been determined.
