St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport Receives Grant for Terminal Renovation Project
St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport (PIE) is pleased to report a $1.5 million grant from the Federal Aviation Administration for safety, security, and the airport's terminal renovation projects.
Airport Director Noah Lagos credits U.S. Congressman C. W. Bill Young, "Congressman Young assisted in obtaining this grant for St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport. The terminal renovation project is vital to improving an aging facility that was constructed in 12 segments over the past 50 years. With passenger airlines, cargo, general aviation and military operations, the airport is important in our U.S. transportation system and we appreciate Congressman Young's support."
In addition to the terminal project, the grant also supports a new generator for the Airport fire and rescue department, new taxiway markings, an airfield drainage study and a new security vehicle.
The terminal project is underway. It is expected that there will be future FAA grants to assist in the funding of this project.
