Airport To Receive Grant From TDOT For Access Road

The Greeneville-Greene County Municipal Airport is set to receive a $1 million-plus aeronautics grant from the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT).

The grant of $1,019,052 in state funds will go toward relocation of the airport's access road and utilities, TDOT announced Friday in a news release.

The grant, from the department's Aeronautics Division, requires a local match of $53,634, which will provide a total of $1,072,686 for the relocation of Whitehouse Road -- the airport's access road.

The project is part of the fourth phase in a larger project -- realignment of the airport runway -- which began in 2009.

Runway realignment was necessary as a safety measure, the result of a "hump" near the middle of the runway that created line-of-sight problems for pilots on the ground.

The realignment project is designed to bring the airport into compliance with Federal Aviation Administration requirements that dictate safe airport operations.


Friday's news release detailed $4.4 million in grants provided by TDOT for a total of 15 Tennessee airports.

The funds will be used for infrastructure and other improvements.

Other airports receiving state funds from TDOT's aeronautics division are located in McMinn, Hardeman, Montgomery, Bradley, Campbell, Knox, Macon, Wilson, Hamblen, Rutherford, Davidson, Roane, White, and Obion counties.

TDOT's Aeronautics Division inspects and licenses the state's 142 heliports and 79 public and general aviation airports.
