WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Charles E. Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand announced recently that a total of $1,156,800 in U.S. Department of Transportation funding for Lt. Warren Eaton Airport in Norwich had come through. The funds will be used for runway rehabilitation construction.
“This is terrific news ... unexpected so quick. I thought we would not hear from them until October and it would be too late to begin work for this season,” said Chenango County Airport Administrator Donald W. MacIntosh.
