Pitt-Greenville Airport gets funding for taxi lane
GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) -The Pitt-Greenville Airport has received funding for a taxi lane.
Democrat 1st District Congressman G. K. Butterfield says the Department of Transportation has awarded $1,425,000 in grant funding.
Butterfield says, “Last year, I wrote a letter to the Federal Aviation Administration in support of grant funding for the Pitt-Greenville Airport Authority’s project, so I was very pleased to receive this notification today. This project will go a long way in helping to improve the economic vitality of the Pitt-Greenville Airport.”
Earlier this year the airport received grant funds to support funding for twice-daily service to a second major airport hub on the East Coast.
