COATESVILLE, PA — State Rep. Dan Williams, D-Chester, announced $1.1 million in state grant funding for Chester County G.O. Carlson Airport.
The funding is part of a $13.7 million statewide project to improve infrastructure at 29 Pennsylvania airports, to help them operate more safely and grow to meet demands and attract more growth, as announced by Gov. Tom Wolf.
The Chester County airport will use its funding to expand the public-use areas in the terminal building, as well as improve ground access to the facility.
“Investing in infrastructure is critical to our community’s economic revitalization,” Williams said. “My thanks to Governor Wolf and PennDOT for this grant to improve Chester County Airport and for committing to our commonwealth’s growth and restoration for all Pennsylvanians. These funds will help the airport complete expansions and improvements that fuel economic development in the area.”
Pennsylvania ranks 13th nationwide in the number of public-use aviation facilities with 127 airports, heliports and seaplane bases. The grant money for these projects comes through the state Transportation Department’s Aviation Transportation Assistance Program, the Aviation Development Program and the Multimodal Fund.
