Airport projects come in under FAA budget

A series of projects at the Greater Rochester International Airport were completed at a total cost of $29 million, a savings of $11 million from the $40 million budgeted by the Federal Aviation Administration, officials announced this week.

The projects were paid for with funding from the FAA’s Passenger Facility Charge program paid for with fees from airplane passengers. They included equipment for airport rescue, firefighting and snow removal, taxiway construction, terminal upgrades and a new baggage screening system.

The savings were achieved through strict project management and sustainable building principles that included the use of existing infrastructure with new components, officials said.
