Westchester County Airport gets fed grant for runways

No word on whether one or both runways will get the new pavement

WHITE PLAINS – Westchester County Airport has been awarded $4.7 million through the FAA’s Airport Improvement Program with the funds to be used to repave the airport’s runway. The last time that was done was in 1998.

The airport has two runways but a news release from Senators Schumer and Gillibrand, and Rep. Nita Lowey, did not say which one will be paved, saying just that “the runway” will addressed.

Work will include two blast pad pavements, replacement of the center line, lighting, runway markings, rehabilitation of taxiway connector pavement including edge lighting and taxiway markings, and the replacement of guidance systems and wind cones.

County Executive George Latimer said the funding “will result in needed infrastructure repairs and improvements that will continue to make the Westchester County Airport a vital transportation hub for our county and our region.” He said it will also mean the hiring of union construction labor to perform the work.
