The Federal Aviation Administration has approved a $5.5 million award to St. Augustine’s Northeast Florida Regional Airport for the construction of a runway safety area.
U.S. Rep. John L. Mica, R-Fla., announced the award Monday.
“This funding will increase the technical length of the runway to allow the (airport) to accommodate larger aircraft,” he said. “These safety improvements will be beneficial to both the airport’s biggest co-tenant, Northrop Grumman, and any future private and commercial service.”
These funds, distributed by the FAA, are not part of the stimulus bill that passed earlier this year, according to the news release.
They are part of a program that directs user fees to airport improvement projects on a competitive basis.
