HUDSON — The Federal Aviation Administration will cover 90 percent of Columbia County’s planned $1.98 million rehabilitation project for the runway at the county airport.

The 5,350-foot-long by 100-foot-wide runway is about 20 years old. It was last paved in 1998.

The Columbia County Board of Supervisors awarded a $1,783,951 contract to A. Colarusso & Son, Inc., of Hudson, in June, to rehabilitate the strip.

The board of supervisors accepted a grant from the FAA at its meeting Wednesday that will reimburse the county 90 percent, or $1.78 million, of the expenses for the runway rehabilitation.

The county also received a state Aviation Capital Funding grant, covering 5 percent, or $99,105, of the project. Columbia County will be left to cover the remaining 5% of the project cost.
