Brown Applauds More Than $100,000 to Improve Neil Armstrong Airport

Funds will Improve Drainage of Airfield Surfaces

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 $106,456 to the Auglaize County Board of Commissioners for structural improvements at the Neil Armstrong Airport. The funds will go toward the installation of 2,400 feet of drainage improvements.

“Ohio airports are vital to supporting travel and commerce in the state,” said Brown. “This investment will help to ensure the safety of the Neil Armstrong Airport for residents and businesses for years to come.”

The FAA supports public-use airports included in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (NPIAS) through the Airport Improvement Program. The program supports projects that improve airport safety, capacity, security and environmental impact. More information about the FAA’s Airport Improvement Program can be found here.
