Medina Journal-Register — New York State awarded $48 million in transportation improvement grants on Thursday with Albion’s Pine Hill Airport one of the recipients.
The grants, from the Governor’s Transit and Aviation Capital Grants programs and the Passenger and Freight Rail Assistance Program, are funding projects that will improve transportation infrastructure and support economic development.
A total of $7 million has been awarded through the Governor’s Aviation Capital Grants Program. These funds, which will leverage an additional $46 million in funding beyond the state level, will support 21 airport infrastructure projects that will improve facilities and provide income-generating opportunities for airports.
Pine Hill Airport received $54,000 to help construct a new apron and taxiway, along with a connector for its west ramp. The project cost itself is approximately $60,000.
