Endicott's Tri-Cities Airport will receive more than $137,000 in federal funding to pay for design work on a runway rehabilitation project.

The money will be coming from the United States Department of Transportation. The grant was announced by Congressman Richard Hanna.

Hanna said the planned upgrades should help maintain safety and improve operational efficiency at the facility.

Airport manager Gerard Corprew says the village is seeking additional funding for the actual construction work on the runway and taxiway.

Corprew said if things go well, construction on the rehabilitation project could start next spring.
