WASHINGTON – The FAA has
announced funding for area airports in the Hudson Valley.

Over $1.7 million has been granted to the Columbia County Airport in Ghent.

The money will be applied to install a runway vertical/visual guidance
system for the airport’s only runway – 3/27. It will also
fund reconstruction of the airfield guidance signs, reconstruction of
the runway lighting system, and rehabilitation of the runway.

The Joseph Y Resnick Airport in Ellenville will receive $45,000 for rehabilitation
of the apron and taxiway for its Taxiway A.

In June, the FAA announced over $7.3 million for Hudson Valley Regional
Airport, formerly called Dutchess County airport, in Wappinger. The money
will be used for construction of an aircraft rescue and firefighting building
and construction of a snow removal equipment building.

Also announced in June was approximately $4.7 million for several projects
at Westchester County Airport at White Plains. They include acquiring
aircraft deicing equipment, removal of obstructions and rehabilitation
of the passenger terminal building.
