Marshfield Airport, Groundbreaking, October 7, 2013MassDOT Aeronautics Division Administrator Christopher Willenborg joined State Senator Robert Hedlund, Representative James Cantwell, state, local and airport officials for today’s groundbreaking ceremony for the Marshfield Municipal Airport Improvement Project.

The $15.2 million project now underway includes the reconstruction of Marshfield Airport Runway 06/24 along with construction of runway safety area ends.  Project funding includes $13.7 million from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) along with $1.4 million in state funds from MassDOT and $118,000 in local Airport funds.

The runway project is scheduled to be completed in late 2014.

According to the 2011 MassDOT Airport Economic Impact Report, Marshfield Municipal Airport supports approximately 50 direct/indirect jobs with an economic output of over $8 million annually.
