Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand have announced over $6 million in federal funding for airports and transportation authorities throughout New York.

Griffiss International Airport in Rome will get over $986,000.

The money will be used for miscellaneous improvements, including runway reconstruction and runway lighting.

“Keeping our airports in top-notch shape is crucial for passenger safety and for attracting business to Upstate New York,” said Schumer. “With this funding, airports across New York will make critical infrastructure upgrades such as rehabilitation of runways, investments in weather reporting, and improvements to airport access and security. This funding will improve the safety and operations for those that fly in and out of Upstate New York.”

The funding was allocated through the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Federal Aviation Administration.
