The Federal Aviation Administration announced Monday that over $5 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act dollars will be used to build a new air traffic control tower at Frederick Municipal Airport in Frederick, Md.
The $5.3 million project will pay for the construction of an air traffic control tower, access road and other infrastructure at one of Maryland’s largest airports. The airport currently does not have an air traffic control tower.

Approximately 200 aircraft are based at the site. The airport handles more than 135,000 aircraft operations annually.
