The Massachusetts Department of Transportation Aeronautics Division announced on Tuesday plans to build or renovate general aviation airport administrative facilities in 15 communities during the next five years -including Beverly Municipal Airport.
 
Beverly Municipal Airport is among the first four airports targeted for construction of a new facility beginning in 2015.

The 15 general aviation airports were chosen as part of a comprehensive, statewide Airport Administration Building Master Plan that identified projects based upon several factors including public safety needs and the amount of activity at the airport.  Each new airport administrative facility will be designed and built according to a flexible prototype design that considers local needs.

“Beverly Airport is a tremendous asset for the North Shore, so I’m thrilled to see MassDOT make such a strong commitment to investing in the facility”, said state Sen. Joan Lovely. “This investment will help several municipal airports, like the one in Beverly, attract people and business to their region, while keeping air travel safe and efficient.”

  • Beverly Municipal Airport, $3.74 million
  • Fitchburg Municipal Airport, $3.45 million
  • Mansfield Municipal Airport, $3.88 million
  • Southbridge Municipal Airport, $1.05 million
  • Each project is state-funded with a required 5% local match. Project construction is expected to take approximately nine months.

    An additional 11 airports are scheduled for construction or renovation in 2016 through 2019.
