The airports in Manchester and Portsmouth will receive a combined $18 million in federal funding for infrastructure improvements.

Most of that money will go to Pease International Tradeport for reconstruction of the airport’s two-mile-long main runway. That project has been in the works for years.

Manchester-Boston Regional Airport will also receive funding to upgrade its taxiways and buy new equipment.

The Federal Aviation Administration is also giving Lebanon’s municipal airport about a million dollars, in part to build a snow removal equipment building.

The state’s Congressional delegation praised the awards, saying the money will bolster the state’s tourism industry and support military operations at Pease.
