The proposed project would be funded in part by grant funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA).
The estimated total project cost for the project is $1,954,328.80.
The project would be broken into 2 eligibility categories:
Activities for ARRA funding would include all work except the taxiway relocation and a portion of the construction phase engineering services. The estimated amount of ARRA funds to be used for the project total $1,627,391.96, and would be used for $1,618,071.75 in construction and $9,320.21 for the costs of construction phase engineering services.
The balance of the project would not be eligible for ARRA funding, and would be financed with Non-Primary Entitlement Funds and local matching funds totaling $326,936.84. These funds would be used in the amounts of $237,124.05 for construction of the taxiway relocation and $89,812.79 for construction phase engineering services.
