$12 Million in Economic Recovery Act Money Released for Pennsylvania Airports

Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood recently announced that Pittsburgh International and Allegheny County Airports will receive the first funding allocations for airport infrastructure projects under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

"This is a critical investment in our nation's airport infrastructure that will boost the local economy by providing jobs for Pittsburgh-area residents," LaHood said.

FAA will allocate $10 million to Pittsburgh International Airport to repair Runway 14-32, one of four commercial service runways. The project includes grading, paving, marking signs, and lighting upgrades to the runway. Pittsburgh serves 4.8 million passengers per year.

"The Recovery Act is helping us accelerate funding to key projects and invest in the continued safe and efficient operation of our airports," said Lynne Osmus, acting FAA administrator.

The $2 million allocation for Allegheny County, a general aviation airport, will renovate a taxiway and relocate a ramp. The Allegheny County Airport Authority operates both airports.
