DUNKIRK, NY- Congressman Tom Reed announced that the Chautauqua County/Dunkirk Airport is the recipient of a United States Department of Transportation grant for $1,254,174.00 for projects to improve and upgrade the facility.

“Airports are an important driver in our regional economy and a vital part of our national transportation infrastructure,” Reed said. “I care about making sure they have the funds necessary to operate in a safe and efficient manner, and this grant will help the Chautauqua County/Dunkirk Airport to continue to do that.”

The grant funds will be used to reconstruct the airport’s taxiway as well as the taxiway lighting.
