WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter today announced that the Manchester Boston Regional Airport will receive a $900,000 grant for the rehabilitation of the terminal apron. The terminal apron was originally constructed with portland cement concrete, which causes swelling of the pavement from the ground up, resulting in significant displacement of pavement on the apron, shattered sections, and even crushed underground drainage utilities. Routine maintenance practices cannot address the damage to the pavement, making reconstruction necessary. This grant is provided by the Federal Aviation Administration through the Department of Transportation.
“This funding will provide necessary infrastructure improvements at the Manchester Airport that will benefit all airport users,” said Congresswoman Shea-Porter.
