Sussex County Receives Funding For Airport Construction

Posted: Updated:

SUSSEX CO., Del. - State lawmakers announced a $4,297,047 million dollar grant for the final phase of the Sussex County Airport runway extension project from the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Aviation Administration.

Construction began in 2012 on this project, which will improve the runway approach and extend the runway by 500 feet to accommodate larger aircraft and attract new business to the region.

The grant award is for the last phase of a four-phase project that includes the 500-foot runway extension, the relocation of airport thresholds to meet design standards, the installation of an approach lighting system, and the establishment of new non-precision instrument approach procedures.  This project also aims to rehabilitate the existing runway pavement. 

So far, the overall $25 million project has earned nearly $9 million in federal funding, with the County and State also contributing funds in varying amounts.
