According to chairman of the Corry Airport Authority Dick Hornick, a $327,050.15 fuel farm project is "nearing completion" at Corry Lawrence Airport.
"The contractor is coming back in to do some more valving at some point. I'm not sure when he's coming in but I signed the papers today (Tuesday) to get money from the state for the remainder of the work," Hornick said in a phone interview Tuesday.
Hornick said the project is expected to be completed by the end of the month.
The project features a new fuel delivery system for Jet A fuel and 100 Low Lead fuel at the airport. It will also consist of new piping and pumps and updates to the filtration system.
Funding for the project is in part from a grant the authority received from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation's Bureau of Aviation.
The Corry Airport Authority will be paying for 5 percent of the total project.
The breakdown of funds is as follows:
- Administrative costs - $2,500
- Engineering costs (additional engineering for re-bid) - $5,186
- Engineering costs (construction observation and administration) - $16,750
- Jet A tank cleaning - $12,000
- Fuel farm construction - $258,690
- Paving - $31,924.15
The construction of the fuel farm project is being handled by Scobell Co. Inc., of Erie.
