Endicott's Tri-Cities Airport will receive $1.4 million in federal funds for repairs and other upgrades.

The money for the project is coming from the United States Department of Transportation.

The planned work calls for milling and paving of 3900 feet of runway surface.

Last summer, the airport received more than $137,000 in federal money to cover the cost of design work for the rehabilitation project.

The small airport, which is owned and operated by the village of Endicott, was established in 1936. The facility is located just west of the En-Joie Golf Club.

Endicott mayor John Bertoni says the improvement work could start within the next two months.
