Greeneville Airport Gets $1.2M Grant For Improvements

The Greeneville-Greene County Municipal Airport will receive more than $1.2 million in aeronautics grant funding, it was announced Tuesday.

A news release from the Tennessee Department of Transportation's (TDOT) Aeronautics Division says the $1,235,000 award is federal aeronautic grant funding.

The news release announced a total of $14.2 million in state and federal funding approved for 18 Tennessee airports, including the Greeneville-Greene County Municipal Airport.

The $1,235,000 grant comes with a $65,000 local match for a total of $1.3 million to be used in land acquisition during Phase IV of the airport's runway realignment project, which has been underway since 2009.

Runway realignment was undertaken as a safety measure to correct 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.

In March, the TDOT Aeronautics Division announced an award of just more than $1 million for the Greeneville-Greene County Municipal Airport.

That grant, which was made up of state funding, was awarded for use in relocating Whitehouse Road, which is the airport's access road.

The TDOT news release says the grants administered by the Aeronautics Division are intended to "assist in the location, design, construction and maintenance" of Tennessee's public aviation system.
