Ocean City airport gets grant
The Ocean City municipal airport has received a grant of more than $160,000 from the U.S. Department of Transportation to upgrade a runway that was constructed in 1978.
U.S. Senators Ben Cardin and Barbara Mikulski announced the funding Thursday. They said in a news release that the airport is now considered to be in a "state of failure" by airport officials.
The $161,465 grant is slated to be spent on the design and engineering work necessary to reconstruct the airport's north/south runway. Officials in the senators' offices say the rehabilitation project will help the runway meet Federal Aviation Administration standards.
