Feds will fund Oxnard Airport runway replacement
Oxnard Airport is getting more than $14.4 million in federal funds to replace the runway, U.S. Rep. Julia Brownley, D-Westlake Village, announced July 1.
The runway will completely replaced, with new pavement and markings, but will stay the same size, at 5,900 feet. The grant is coming from the Federal Aviation Administration’s Airport Improvement Program, and will help support the airport’s operations for the next 25 years.
“This critical funding will allow Oxnard Airport to rehabilitate its runway and improve safety for airport users,” Brownley said in a news release.“Funding for airport infrastructure improvements is crucial for local aviation businesses, for local companies that use the airport for goods movement, and for aviation enthusiasts in Ventura County and throughout our region.”
