FAA grant for Delta County Airport

The Delta County Airport in Escanaba will be able to make infrastructure improvements with a large federal grant.

Michigan Senators Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow say the grant is worth $902,500.

The money from the FAA will help pay for pavement replacement and widening on one of the airport’s two runways.

The grant will also cover new commercial and general aviation aprons and new markings to improve safety and help aircraft movement.
