Airports around Maine are getting more than $6 million in federal funding to make improvements while they cope with the impact of reduced travel.
The largest grant is a grant of more than $3.2 million to Wiscasset Airport to make runway improvements. The state’s largest airport, Portland International Jetport, will get more than $2.2 million to construct and rehabilitate the taxiway.
U.S. Sen. Susan Collins, a Republican, said investing in airport infrastructure will help make sure airports in Maine are able to maintain their roles as major job creators.
Airports in Bethel, Augusta and Trenton are also receiving grants to make improvements.
