LINDEN –The Federal Aviation Administration has awarded a $237,600 grant for runway rehabilitation for Linden Airport, according to U.S. Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ).
“This federal aid is aimed at repairing a heavily-used part of our transportation infrastructure to make sure flights depart and arrive at Linden Airport in the safest possible conditions,” said Menendez. “Making sure New Jerseyans keep moving is an integral part of our prosperity. And I am committed to fighting for the federal resources we need to keep our airports and all of New Jersey’s transportation systems running as safely and as efficiently as possible.”
The funding was awarded for rehabilitation of Linden Airport’s runway pavement that has reached the end of its useful life. This phase of the project will consist of crack sealing.
Linden Airport is a reliever airport that operates three miles away from Newark Liberty International Airport.
