CHARLEVOIX, Mich. (AP) - Two Michigan airports are getting funding for runway rehabilitation and other work.

U.S. Sens. Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters of Michigan announced Thursday that the city of Charlevoix will get more than $1.2 million to rehabilitate runways and install a runway guidance system at Charlevoix Municipal Airport in the northern Lower Peninsula.

They say the Economic Development Corp. of Chippewa County will get more than $950,000 to rehabilitate runways and purchase snow removal equipment at the Chippewa County International Airport in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

The funding comes from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration as a part of the Runway Incursion Mitigation Program.
