Currituck County has been awarded more than $1 million from the North Carolina Department of Transportation to fund infrastructure improvements at the Currituck County Regional Airport. The award will fund the replacement of the airport’s fuel facility that provides gasoline for airplanes. Currituck County receives $1,123,000 from the state for the project.
The Currituck Regional Airport averages more than 60 aircraft operations per day and the fuel farm is a key component of the airport’s success. Self-serve AvGas and Jet-A fuels are available for pilots on a 24/7 basis.
Currituck County is in the process of receiving bids for this project. A projected completion date has not yet been established.
