MISSISSIPPI DELTA — The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is making more than $2 million available to rehabilitate a critical taxiway at the Mid-Delta Regional Airport in Greenville and to purchase an emergency rescue vehicle.
The FAA funding — consisting of $1.65 million in discretionary funding and $369,036 in entitlement funding — will enable the city of Greenville to rehabilitate an estimated 1,896 linear feet of Taxiway E, which has been closed due to existing pavement conditions. The funding will also support the purchase of an aircraft rescue and fire fighting vehicle and to continue a wildlife management plan at the airport.
Last week, the FAA awarded AIP grants to two other Mississippi Delta airports, including $1.13 million as part of a multi-year grant to support hangar construction and apron work at the Tunica Municipal Airport and $301,725 for perimeter security and safety improvements at the Hollandale Municipal Airport.
