Regional airports receive infrastructure funds
A number of regional airports are being awarded funds from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Airport Funding initiative.
The Federal Aviation Administration is awarding nearly $1 billion to 99 airports nationwide to help meet air travel demand and invest in infrastructure.
The Burlington International Airport will receive just over $2 million for a new South terminal. The Albany International Airport will get $2 million to rehabilitate its air traffic control tower.
The Airport Terminal Program will partially fund Bradley International Airport’s terminal expansion project, which includes a new checked baggage system. The Syracuse Regional Airport will receive funds for a project to increase energy efficiency and cut emissions in the terminal building.
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law provides $1 billion annually for five years for Airport Terminal Program grants.
