LOWER TOWNSHIP – The operators of the Cape May Airport are getting $3.5 million in federal funding to make runway and tarmac improvements.
U.S. Rep. Frank LoBiondo, R-2nd, announced that the Delaware River & Bay Authority will get the grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation to rehabilitate one of its runways and extend a neighboring taxiway.
The Cape May Airport is the site of several federal drone-research projects along with a growing commercial and industrial park.
LoBiondo said South Jersey’s community airports have created jobs and business opportunities. The DRBA recently broke ground on a new mixed-use building for new tenants at the Cape May Airport.
