NEW WINDSOR – Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney announced over $1.7 million in FAA funding to be applied to the cost of repaving Stewart Airport’s two runways.
The $61 million in improvements, which included lighting system upgrades, were completed earlier this year.
In August of last year, the FAA announced $1.8 million to be applied to the cost of the work. It was not immediately known if this newly announced funding was in addition to last year’s grant.
Passenger facility charges, added to the airline ticket prices, also helped pay for the runway upgrade project.
