Higgins Announces $2.4 Million to Dunkirk Airport

Press Release

Location: Unknown

Congressman Brian Higgins announced that Dunkirk Airport has been awarded $2.4 million in federal funding from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for the third phase of its runway expansion project.

"I am pleased that Dunkirk Airport has once again received federal funding to continue runway expansion efforts," said Congressman Higgins. "Infrastructure investments like this one mean more visitors to Chautauqua County and increased job potential and activity for local business."

In 2010, Dunkirk Airport received $115,000 toward phase II of the project, allowing for the purchase of land for the runway's end protection zone, and $302,000 for design work related to runway expansion. Dunkirk Airport also received $3.5 million through the Recovery Act and an additional $1 million requested by Congressman Higgins in transportation appropriations legislation for airport improvements.
