South Buffalo's McVille Airport is among 20 airports across the state slated to receive funding through PennDOT's aviation development program for upgrading facilities.

McVille Airport has been allocated $200,000 to construct a hangar.

“Providing transportation options is vital to moving goods and people,” Gov. Tom Corbett said in a release on Monday.

“That's why we've invested $50 million in aviation since January 2011.”

The privately owned airport, along Ford City Road, last year received $93,750 from the fund for snow removal equipment.
