The Corry Airport Authority asked the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Aviation for more money to help finance a runway rehabilitation project.
The authority previously had been awarded a $230,000 grant from the Federal Aviation Administration for a project to seal coat cracks in the runway and taxiway at Corry-Lawrence Airport.
The authority, however, asked the bureau, which administers the grants for the FAA, if it could beef up that grant to help cover the entire cost of the project, which includes about $47,000 in engineering costs.
The bureau came through by awarding the authority a revised grant totaling $276,623.
“This will now cover the full cost of the pavement rehabilitation,” City Administrator Gerry Dahl said at a recent authority meeting. “That’s good news.”
