Corbett announces investment to improve airport safety

Erie Times-News
Gov. Tom Corbett on Friday announced a $4 million state investment that will upgrade facilities and improve safety at 18 Pennsylvania airports.

The $4 million in grants will be provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s aviation development program.

Funding for the program is provided by the state’s jet-fuel tax, and leverages more than $1.3 million in local matching funds.

Corry-Lawrence Airport will receive $75,000 for improvements to its aircraft-fueling facility. Titusville Airport will receive $5,400 to develop municipal hazard zoning ordinances. Grove City Regional Airport will receive $356,250 for improvements to its aircraft-fueling facility.

Public-use airports in the state are eligible for the aviation development program. The state has 133 public-use airports and heliports; 15 of the airports have scheduled commercial service.
