Schumer: Syracuse Suburban Airport To Receive $300,000

Money will be used to rehabilitate runway and conduct master plan study required before beginning airport projects

US Senator Charles E. Schumer today announced that the US Department of Transportation has awarded $300,000 in Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) grants to Syracuse Suburban Airport for runway and general airport improvements.

“Safe and secure air service is a critical engine of the Central Region's continued economic growth,” said Schumer. “This funding will allow Syracuse to beef up its landing and runway technologies to meet today's modern aviation demands.”

Airports must conduct master plan assessments before embarking on airport projects. Syracuse Suburban Airport will use the grant to prepare an assessment for projects identified by the Airport's master plan. The Airport will also use the funds to rehabilitate Runway 10-28 whose pavement condition was poor and required rehabilitation to ensure safe aircraft operations.

Schumer also announced that the US Department of Transportation will provide $93,571 for the Lake Placid Airport to conduct an environmental assessment in the airport's master plan study. The Buffalo-Lancaster Airport will also receive $58,898 to construct a T-Hanger building.
