ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Two upstate New York airports are getting more than $2.6 million in federal grants.
Sidney Municipal Airport in Delaware County will receive $1.8 million and Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport in Tompkins County is being awarded $870,000.
The infrastructure funding from the Federal Aviation Administration will go to construct a new taxiway at Sidney Regional Airport. The Ithaca grant will be used to build a new passenger boarding bridge.
The money comes from the Airport and Airway Trust Fund, which is supported in part by user fees and fuel taxes.
