The U.S Department of Transportation has awarded a $650,000 airport infrastructure grant for an apron replacement project at the Stevensville Municipal Airport.

The apron replacement is part of a larger project at Stevensville’s airport which will not only update the aging pavement on the apron, but will rehabilitate taxi lanes that lead to the runway which was reconstructed in 2017. The project will also improve some of the airport’s lighting.

The entire project is estimated to cost $1.7 million and will be paid for through grants from the FAA and other federal and state programs matched by user fees collected through the airport’s operations.
