DRBA Eyes Runway Improvements; Tenant Building Expansion at Airport

MILLVILLE — The Delaware River and Bay Authority Commissioners recently adopted the agency’s 2022 Capital Improvement Program along with an Authority-wide Five-Year Strategic Plan for the agency’s airports and crossing facilities. The 2022 CIP of $151.2 million is comprised of $126.9 million in Authority resources and $24.3 million in federal, state, and local grant funds. Among the projects planned includes construction of a multi-tenant light industrial building to accommodate new tenancy requests at the Millville Airport. According to officials, Millville Airport has experienced increased development and business interest and there is little available space to accommodate demand. This project has an estimated DRBA cost of $250,000 in 2022 and $3.3 million in the out years.
Additionally, in accordance with the findings of the latest Pavement Management Study, taxiways A, C, and G need repair. The project programs the design and construction costs for these repairs to include pavement resurfacing, lighting, signage, and associated drainage improvements. This project has an estimated DRBA cost of $25,000 in 2022 and $731,000 in the out years. The project is partially funded in the amount of approximately $6.5 million by the FAA.
