U.S. Sens. Bob Menendez and Cory Booker announced on May 31 $7,422,115 in Federal Aviation Administration grants for improvements at Morristown Municipal Airport and Atlantic City International Airport.
Morristown Municipal Airport is receiving $7,021,659 for runway safety improvements.
Atlantic City International Airport is receiving $400,456 toward the construction of a de-icing facility. This is in addition to the $8 million to build the de-icing facility the senators previously announced on May 14.
“These important federal investments not only help ensure the safety of air travelers, but stimulate our local economy and create new jobs,” Menendez said. “Modernizing our aging infrastructure helps keep our state economically competitive, and is a top priority as I fight for New Jersey in Washington.”
“This federal investment is another example of our shared commitment to restoring New Jersey’s aging infrastructure,” Booker said. “By investing in the Morristown and Atlantic City airports, we are not only keeping travelers safe and moving, but also strengthening New Jersey’s economy.”
