The Jones-Riverside Airport in Tulsa County will receive $4.7 million in federal, state and local matching funds, according to the Oklahoma Aeronautics Commission. The funding is part of the commission's statewide airport Capital Improvement Program for fiscal years 2016-2018.

The airport will use the money to upgrade its runways and airfield signage. Jones-Riverside is one of the busiest small airports in the country.

“Jones-Riverside has a level of both business and general aviation that is significant not only to Tulsa but to the state,” said Jeff Mulder, director of the Tulsa Airport Improvement Trust and current chairman of the American Association of Airport Executives. 

“We appreciate the support expressed from the Aeronautics Commission through the inclusion of this project in its CIP.”

Other Oklahoma airports to receive CIP funds include include a $4.4 million project to construct a new runway at Jones Memorial Airport in Bristow, $3.8 million to reconstruct and align the existing taxiway and connecting taxiway to the primary runway at Stillwater Regional Airport, $2.8 million to improve the runway, parallel taxiway and apron at Claremore Regional Airport, and $2.3 million to improve the runway and taxiway at Mid-America Industrial Airport located near Pryor.
