Salisbury Airport receives $3.4 million grant

SALISBURY, Md. – The Salisbury Airport is getting some needed repairs, but not without the help of a hefty grant.

The Federal Aviation Administration announced earlier this week that the airport received over 3.4 million dollars.

Airport officials tell 47 ABC that the money will go toward repairing the apron, where the planes park, and making repairs on the taxiway.

Officials say that while there is no major damage to either area right now, they’re working to make sure the cement in both areas will last into the future.

“Pavement over time, even airport pavement, it’s built to specific standards, but it’s gotta be kept up, and it does deteriorate over time, with weather and loading, but mostly weather will take its toll on it,” Tony Rudy, assistant manager at the airport, said.

Government leaders say that making these repairs is important and will ensure that each and every passenger is safe at the airport.
