New federal funding for upgrades to Atlantic City Airport

The South Jersey Transportation Authority is to get $300,000 (well, the exact sum is $299,898) from the U.S. Department of Transportation Authority for upgrades to the Atlantic City Airport. The money is specifically for rehabilitation of the airport’s deteriorating runway.

Describing the investment as essential, Sen. Bob Menendez said, “Modernizing New Jersey’s airports is vital to our economy and the safety of air travelers.” Sen. Cory Booker said that “By making key federal investments like this in the modernization of our region’s aging infrastructure, we are taking important steps to create jobs, strengthen our economy and bolster New Jersey’s economic competitiveness.”
