Reed Announces Grant for Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport
ITHACA, NY- Congressman Tom Reed announced that the Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport is the recipient of a United States Department of Transportation grant for $289,216.00 for projects to improve and upgrade the facility.
“Airports are a vital part of our national transportation infrastructure as well as an important driver in our regional economy,” Reed said. “It is important that they have the funds necessary to operate in a safe and efficient manner, and this grant will help Ithaca Tompkins Regional to continue to do that.”
The grant funds will be used to rehabilitate the airport apron where aircraft are parked, fueled and boarded. It will also cover installation of new apron flood lighting and perimeter fencing.
