GSP Airport upgrades safety with stimulus funds

An upstate airport will receive $2.3 million in federal economic stimulus funds to bolster airport safety and get a new rescue and fire fighting vehicle. The grant awarded to Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport was announced Tuesday by the U.S. Department of Transportation
Roslyn Weston, an airport spokesperson, says, “Those funds will be used to purchase a new repid intervention vehicle. the bulk of it, however, will be used for security equipment upgrades, including things like additional and new cameras and card access.”
The grant is part of the $1.1 billion the Federal Aviation Administration received under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
