CINCINNATI (AP) - Officials say two Cincinnati-area airports will receive almost $340,000 in federal funding for repairs and new equipment.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports (https://cin.ci/1EGwUb0 ) Cincinnati Municipal Lunken Airport and Cincinnati West Airport in Harrison were awarded the funds by the U.S. Department of Transportation on Thursday.

Sen. Sherrod Brown called the funding “great news” for the Cincinnati region and says the money will be used to enhance safety at the airports.

Cincinnati Municipal Lunken Airport was given $157,500 to repair its shortest runway, which stretches southwest from Wilmer Avenue toward Kellogg Avenue.

Cincinnati West Airport will use its $180,115 award to purchase a new visual guidance system and cover the cost of conducting a wildlife hazard assessment.
