Brunswick, Presque Isle airports awarded $3.1M in federal aid

Courtesy / Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority Brunswick Executive Airport will receive over $2 million in federal funds to make improvements to a parking lot and a runway apron.

Brunswick Executive Airport and Presque Isle International Airport have been awarded a total of $3,122,304 in federal funds to make improvements and enhance services.

The funding is part of the latest round of grants from the Federal Aviation Administration’s Airport Improvement Program. The program, established in 1982, is budgeted to provide $3.8 billion in the 2020 fiscal year for infrastructure improvements at U.S. airports.

In Brunswick, a grant of $422,718 will fund improvements to the airport’s parking lot and another $1,624,770 will go toward rehabilitation of a runway apron.

The Presque Isle airport will receive $1,074,816 to purchase two snow sweepers, which will help keep the main runway clear and the airport serviceable during inclement winter weather.

U.S. Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, announced the awards in a news release Thursday.

“In a large state like Maine, local airports are an important transportation option that help promote job creation, economic development, and access to emergency services in rural communities,” she said. “This funding will help the Brunswick Executive Airport and the Presque Isle International Airport improve their infrastructure to enhance safety and efficiency for Mainers and visitors to our state.”
