$78,000 FAA Grant for Crisfield Airport

Sep 13, 2012

The City of Crisfield and Somerset County have been awarded over $78-thousand in Federal Aviation Money to update the Crisfield Municipal Airport’s master plan.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports that the announcement by Maryland Senators Barbara Mikulski and Ben Cardin will go toward upgrading operations and improving safety.

The first phase will use aerial reconnaissance to ensure there are no obstructions around the facility that would pose a danger to aircraft.

In addition, an environmental assessment will be made of the airport and its impact and its neighbors.

Finally, the layout of the airport will be reviewed taking around 9 months.
