Tweed gets $2.5 million for new terminal at New Haven Regional Airport

The Federal Aviation Administration has awarded Tweed New Haven Regional Airport a $2.5 million grant toward the cost of building a new 75,000-square-foot terminal on the East Haven side of the airport, airport officials announced Thursday. The project, currently estimated at $165 million, also includes lengthening the airport’s runway, adding additional parking and building a new entrance off Proto Drive in East Haven. East Haven Mayor Joe Carfora, in his letter announcing East Haven’s appeal of the FAA’s FONSI, strongly suggested that more discussion of the issues associated with expansion and an environmental impact statement are needed. The expansion plan and the FAA’s investment makes “an important step forward” for Tweed which currently has an outdated, undersized terminal that is subject to flooding, the release states.
