U.S. Senators Charles E. Schumer and Hillary Clinton today announced $2,400,000 for the Adirondack Regional Airport from the Airport Improvement Program (AIP) at the U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
This is great news for the Adirondack Regional Airport, said Senator Schumer. This airport welcome travelers to New York each year, and these improvements are important for local businesses and strengthening the local economy. I will continue to fight for federal funds to help this airports remain a thriving center of activity and a hub for economic growth in the region.
"The Adirondack Regional Airport continues to be one of the best gateways for tourists, locals and businesses to access the heart of the Adirondacks Mountains and the TriLakes Region. We have to do everything we can to make it easier for people to visit and conduct business in the North Country. This is great news because these investments in runway upgrades are as important to the airport's future as they are to the communities it supports," Senator Clinton said.
At the Adirondack Regional Airport, this grant will provide federal funding for phase two of runway rehabilitation. The existing pavement condition of the taxiways, ramp and runway is poor and requires rehabilitation to ensure safe aircraft operations.
