Binghamton Airport Gets Grant to Repave Tarmac
The Binghamton Airport is getting some big funding from the FAA to make some critical improvements.
The airport will receive almost 4 million dollars in funding to repave the tarmac.
Right now, the asphalt has indentations and cracks that could crumble and interfere with planes’ engines.
The asphalt will be replaced with concrete, which is safer and more durable.
“Well the reason we’re doing the project now is before it becomes a safety hazard. This pavement has been in here quite awhile, and it’s starting to deteriorate, and we want to get it right now before it becomes a safety issue,” said Dave Hickling, Deputy Comissioner, Greater Binghamton Airport.
The money from the FAA will cover about 95 percent of the construction project. The airport will use local contractors to complete the job, so the money will stay here in the community.
