MassDOT 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.
“This important safety and economic development project fits well with MassDOT Aeronautics Division’s mission of promoting aviation across the Commonwealth while establishing an efficient, integrated airport system that is focused on airport safety, customer service, economic development, and environmental stewardship,” said Administrator Willenborg.
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.
