Federal funding announced for three Virginia airports
Three airports in Virginia will receive nearly $2 million in funds from the Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration, according to a news release issued Friday by democratic U.S. Sens. Mark Warner and Tim Kaine.
Airports in Petersburg/Dinwiddie, Front Royal/Warren and Culpeper will receive funds to rehabilitate pavement conditions and improve the safety of their facilities.
Projects and amounts are listed below:
· Dinwiddie County Airport and Industrial Authority – $1 million. This grant will fund milling and overlay to rehabilitate 9,300 square yards of the existing apron pavement and 650 feet of the existing Taxiway D pavement that have reached the end of their useful lives. This is the second phase of a two-phase project.
· Front Royal-Warren County Airport – $618,054. This project will fund the removal of tree obstructions in the Runway 10/28 transitional surfaces. This is final phase of a six-phase project.
· Culpeper Regional Airport – $124,784. This project will fund the design for the rehabilitation of 5,000 feet of the existing T-hangar, taxi-lane pavement that has reached the end of its useful life.
Earlier this week, Warner and Kaine also announced more than $12 million in federal funding to airports in Richmond, Norfolk and Emporia/Greensville.
