Federal Grants to Dunkirk & Jamestown Support Improvements, Equipment

Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-27) announced two U.S. Department of Transportation grants, totaling $412,300, for airports in Chautauqua County.

“In addition to making air travel safer, investments like these in our transportation infrastructure support tourism and business that drive Chautauqua County’s local economy,” said Congressman Higgins. 

"Operating regionally significant airports continues to be a challenging endeavor, and this type of support from the U.S. Department of Transportation is essential," Edwards said.

Congress Comes to Town

JAMESTOWN, N.Y. -- U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer and Congressman Brian Higgins attended groundbreaking ceremonies on Monday at the soon-to-be revitalized Jamestown Train Station.

The train station, which was first constructed in 1931 and closed in 1973, will begin renovations that will allow it to become fully operating, bringing commerce and tourists to the area. Western New York’s congressional delegation has worked to secure over $4.6 million in funding for the project since 2005.

Congressman Higgins also visited the Jamestown Airport with Dunkirk Aviation President Lou Nalbone to announce $412,000 in new Department of Transportation funding for Chautauqua County airports.

The Jamestown native suffered severe injuries after hitting an improvised explosive device (I.E.D.).

After being released from the hospital, John came home to Western New York. He still suffers from severe memory loss, so he needs round-the-clock assistance. He has been living with his parents in their Town of Boston home.
