Menendez, Booker Announce over $800K to South Jersey Regional Airport in Mount Holly


WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senators Robert Menendez and Cory Booker (both D-N.J.) today announced $810,000 in federal funding for improvements to South Jersey Regional Airport in New Jersey. The funding is awarded through the Department of Transportation's Federal Aviation Administration and will go towards milling and crack sealing to rehabilitate 23,640 square yards of the existing apron pavement that has reached the end of its useful life.

“Today’s announcement will go a long way in ensuring the South Jersey Regional Airport continues to serve as a source of regional economic development,” said Senator Menendez.  “That is why I will continue to fight for funding to ensure the vitalization of our state’s aging infrastructure remains a top priority.”

"It is extremely important to the growth of our state's economy that our regional airports can operate safely,” said Sen. Booker. "I am pleased that this funding will help rehabilitate South Jersey Regional Airport in Mount Holly, keeping passengers safe and good jobs in New Jersey."
