CORVALLIS, Ore. -- The Corvallis Municipal Airport is receiving a $2.15-million grant approved by Congress to help with airport safety.
The grant will help fund a fence that will go up around the perimeter of the airport.
“This is great news for the city of Corvallis and all who use this airport to travel to and from the Willamette Valley,” said Chair of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure Peter DeFazio.
The Corvallis Municipal Airport recently underwent a runway remodel that cost $8 million.
The $2.15-million Airport Improvement Program (AIP) grant is from the Federal Aviation Administration.
The Corvallis Municipal Airport runs on revenue, so the grant is a big help.
