Connecticut’s airports receive $12.5 million in federal grants, with two projects planned at Bradley

Eleven airports in the state have been awarded nearly $12.5 million in federal infrastructure funding that is expected to help them increase flights and invest in infrastructure improvements. Connecticut leaders announced the funding from the Federal Aviation Administration on Friday. Bradley International Airport will get the biggest chunk, with more than $9 million. Over the next five years, $45 million will go toward Bradley, said U.S. Rep. John Larson, D-Conn. At the the Connecticut Airport Authority’s general aviation airports, the money will be used generally to enhance airfield infrastructure and undertake other necessary safety projects. In this round, Tweed New Haven Airport will get more than $1 million. Igor I Sikorsky Memorial in Bridgeport will receive $763,000. Danbury, Groton-New London, and Waterbury-Oxford airports will each get $295,000. Another $159,000 each will go toward Danielson, Hartford-Brainard, Meriden Markham Municipal, Robertson Field and Windham airports.
