The Altoona-Blair County Airport is working on resurfacing its shorter runway, the 3,668-foot one that runs east-west. The project is part of the airport's ongoing maintenance efforts. The airport recently received the third part of a three-part federal grant related to COVID-19 expenses.

The Altoona-Blair County Airport in North Woodbury Township has received the third installment of a three-part grant from the federal government designed to help the airport offset COVID-19 related expenses and losses.

Airport Manager Tracy Plessinger said that the airport has received a three-part grant composed of payments of $69,000, $23,000 and $59,000, for a total of $151,000.

Plessinger said that the funds can be used to offset any expenses that the airport incurred as part of the COVID-19 pandemic, including employee salaries, debt service and cleaning and disinfection services.
