Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin is announcing funding for pavement renovations at Sturgis Municipal Airport.
The funding amounts to $1.325 million that’s going to improve the runway at the airport.
“Maintaining and preserving airport infrastructure is critical to the economic viability of our Commonwealth,” says Gov. Bevin.
The Sturgis Municipal Airport is going to be one of the first to benefit from a larger initiative in which $20 million is being dedicated to pavement projects at general-aviation airports over the next two years.
The project includes a two-inch asphalt overaly on the parallel taxiway. This will include removing approximately 135,000 square-feet of unusable pavement.
The funding comes from the 2016 General Assembly and Gov. Bevin, and the project is administered through the Kentucky Department of Aviation.
