Brewster Announces $223,000 in Funding for Allegheny County Airport

Allegheny County Airport in West Mifflin is slated to receive a $223,000 grant to acquire equipment for the airport facility, Sen. Jim Brewster announced today.

“The Allegheny County Airport is a tremendous asset and an important part of the region’s transportation network,” Brewster said.  “The grant funds will be utilized to buy equipment and support operations at the facility.”

The funding was approved through the state Department of Transportation’s Aviation Development Program.   The Allegheny County Airport is one of 26-grants approved statewide for aviation projects.  Over $6 million was approved for aviation projects in this funding round. 

“The airport serves the entire economy of southwestern Pennsylvania and will grow in importance when other key local economic projects – such as the Mon-Fayette Expressway – are completed,” Brewster said.  “A first-rate airport is a strong economic tool that can be used to attract other development and jobs.”

Brewster said that funding for the grants is generated through the state’s jet fuel tax and the multimodal fund. 

Brewster is a member of the Senate Transportation Committee.
