Mayor William Pikolycky is pleased to announce that the Borough of Woodbine has made application to the New Jersey Department of Transportation for discretionary aid in the amount of $214,081.50 to complete improvements to the main entrance road to the Woodbine Municipal Airport and Airport Business Park.
The Borough had previously undertaken a road improvement project for the Airport Entrance Road utilizing FY 2008 Smart Growth Initiative funding. Unfortunately when that project was bid, there were insufficient monies in the State allocation to award the entire project and approximately 40% of the roadway was left out. This roadway is the primary public entrance to the airport, providing access to the terminal area, general aviation area, and the Airport Business Park. As a result of the ongoing use and adding of the existing pavement, the road is need of improvement to serve the upcoming Airport Business Park.
“This additional funding will permit us to complete work required to finish this access work for our municipal airport and airport business park, which will serve as Woodbine’s major economic engines under our revised Master Plan,” added Mayor Pikolycky.
