Tecumseh Airport Drive to be Paved

Article Image Alt Text

The driveway to the Tecumseh Airport is expected to be paved within the next two weeks. The Tecumseh Airport Authority (TAA) has been planning this project for the past five years. The project was expected to begin last fall, but was delayed due to the weather conditions.

This will be a double-laned concrete driveway to the Airport. The parking lot will also be paved. After the driveway is paved there will be additional grading and seeding, therefore the entire project is expected to be completed by October. The total cost of the project is estimated at $730,000. The TAA received grant funds from the Federal Aviation Association (FAA). The FFA will pay 90 percent of the project costs, leaving 10 percent ($73,000) to the TAA.
