Airport lands FAA assistance for runway
GREENVILLE — Senators Thad Cochran and Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) report that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has released $1 million in funding they worked to secure last year for runway improvements at the Mid-Delta Regional Airport in Greenville.
The FAA funding will support Phase 2 rehabilitation of runway 18R/36L at the commercial air service airport in Washington County. The project is intended to extend the useful life of the runway pavement.
The award was made to the City of Greenville.
At the request of the city, Cochran and Wicker last year requested and secured this congressionally-directed funding as part of the FY2010 Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Bill. The FAA Airport Improvement Program (AIP) funding is provided to support infrastructure development projects that will improve operational safety and efficiency at local airport facilities.
