MassDOT's Aeronautics Division during summer 2010 performed much needed statewide crack repair and pavement marking projects for 11 of the Commonwealth’s privately-owned/public-use airports. Runway repairs are shown underway at Great Barrington, left.
The project assists privately-owned/public-use airports in maintaining the safety and serviceability of their paved runways.

The project included the following airports: Falmouth, Great Barrington, Hanson-Cranland, Hopedale-Draper Industrial Park, Northampton, Plum-Island/Newburyport, Spencer Airport, Sterling, Stow-Minuteman Air Field, Tanner-Hiller Airport and new pavement markings only at Marlboro Airport.
The $1 million project was funded through MassDOT's Airport Safety and Maintenance Program.
