Airport Gets Construction Grant Following FAA Shutdown

Airport Gets Construction Grant Following FAA Shutdown

A Federal Aviation Administration shutdown in July forced the Sheridan County Airport to wait on an grant that would allow them to renovate their taxiway, but airport Manager John Stopka said Friday that they received that grant this week, and now they will be able to start the project in September.

AEC won the bid for the project with the low amount of $449,617, and they will replace 11 LED signs on the taxiway and upgrade four lighting regulators.

The Sheridan County Commissioners approved the grant at their Aug. 1 meeting contingent upon the airport receiving the FAA grant. Stopka added that even with the slight delay, the project should be completed this year because it can be worked on into the winter months.
