Airport to receive $90,000
Carlisle Airport is one of 26 airports in the state that will receive funding for infrastructure and equipment upgrades from the state.
Gov. Tom Wolf announced the more than $6 million investment in airports Thursday morning.
“With more than 400 airports across the state, this support from my administration helps keep aviation a viable transportation alternative and adds to our economy as well,” Wolf said in a news release. “These airports support hundreds of thousands of jobs and offer services that are attractive to the business community and others interested in general aviation.”
Carlisle Airport in South Middleton Township will receive $90,000 to trim and remove trees that affect the approach to the runway, according to the state.
Included in the state grants is $2.2 million in state funding from PennDOT’s Aviation Development Program, which comes from the state’s jet fuel tax, as well as $4 million from the Multimodal fund. The two funding streams leverage $2.1 million in local matching funds.
