PLATTSBURGH, NY. (WCAX) - New York Congresswoman Elise Stefanik says the Plattsburgh International Airport is in line for $765,000 in federal grants for rehabilitation and construction.

The Department of Transportation funding will include $135,000 for rehabilitating the apron, $315,000 for the taxiway and $315,000 to construct a de-icing pad.

“Plattsburgh International Airport allows North Country residents the ability to conveniently travel, and I have long advocated for additional funding and resources to continue its essential flight services. I am proud that nearly $1 million dollars in taxpayer dollars will return to the airport for important construction projects and maintenance,” Stefanik said in a statement Tuesday.
