Canandaigua & Seneca Falls, N.Y. - Two airports in the Finger Lakes region are getting federal money for runway and other upgrades.
The Federal Aviation Administration announced Wednesday that the Canandaigua Airport and the Finger Lakes Regional Airport in Seneca Falls are getting grants.
The Canandaigua Airport will receive $7.1 million to lengthen and widen the runway.
The airport is near an industrial park with businesses that require a larger runway for their planes.
Construction is scheduled to begin next spring, and is expected to take about a year to complete.
In Seneca Falls, the Finger Lakes Regional Airport will receive $180,000 from the FAA to fix one of its runways.
The improvements at both airports are designed to enhance safety and help the region's economy.
