Over $119,000 is set to go to infrastructure projects at Randall Airport in the Town of Wallkill. The funding comes from the Federal Aviation Administration’s Airport Improvement Program (AIP) and will be used to purchase .25 acres of new land and to rehabilitate over 8,700 square yards of pre-existing pavement used for airplane loading and unloading.

“Keeping our airports in top-notch shape is crucial to attracting business and tourism to the region,” said Sen. Charles Schumer in a press release.

Funds for the AIP come out of the Airport and Airway Trust Fund, which gets money from user fees, fuel taxes, and similar revenue sources.
