WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) announced that the Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has awarded $112,500 to the City of Middletown for improvements to Middletown Regional/Hook Field Airport’s runway. The funds will go toward installing new precision approach path indicators to Runway 5/23.
