Governor Wolf announces $10 Million in investments to improve 10 airports including the DuBois Regional Airport
Governor Tom Wolf has announced $10 million in state investments to support 12 projects at 10 airports through the Aviation Transportation Assistance Program.
“Aviation plays a vital role in keeping our state’s economy moving,” Governor Wolf said. “These investments will help Pennsylvania’s airports operate safely, expand to meet current demands, and sustain growth well into the future.”
Pennsylvania has 121 public-use aviation facilities including airports, heliports, and seaplane bases, and these new investments will expand aviation-related operational and economic opportunities statewide.
In Jefferson County, the DuBois Regional Airport will receive $215,000 to rehabilitate T-hangar taxiways and apron pavement and $200,000 to rehabilitate the administration building and upgrade the existing utilities.
