About us

Our story

Over the last 40 years, EA has built a reputation for a common sense approach to engineering, land development and surveying. This approach allows us to see the “Big Picture” and deliver projects on schedule and within budget. One of EA’s strengths is the longevity of employment by its employees. With little turnover in the last 40 years, you can bank on working with familiar project managers rather than meeting someone new each time you need work done. Also, EA prides itself in that a partner within the firm is working on your project which eliminates time delays due to “running it up the ladder”.

What We Offer

At EA Partners we offer a personalized client relationship.  Our focus is on people and how we can deliver quality, innovative solutions that meet our clients’ needs. 


Whether the layout of a residential subdivision or a highway improvement project, we develop creative solutions and deliver quality plans that meet your schedule.

Proven Track Record

EA Partners has received multiple awards for Kentucky Transportation Cabinet projects.  Each of these showcased our ability to deliver innovative solutions that meet the needs of the traveling public.
