The Port of Friday Harbor will receive $90,000 in state transportation fund to help cover the cost of its pending taxiway reconstruction project.
The grant, totaling $90,782, is funded by the Aviation Division of the state Department of Transportation and will be used as a portion of the “local match” that the port must finance as part of the taxiway reconstruction project, which is slated to get under way at the July 23.
The port is obligated to contribute 10 percent of the $3.3 million in federal funds, financed by the Federal Aviation Administration, earmarked for the project.
The port has previously been the beneficiary of nearly $180,000 in state DOT funding, provided for various projects at Friday Harbor Airport.
