Crews are installing new fencing around the Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport, and work is fully visible to drivers passing by on Route 13.

Airport Manager Bob Nicholas says the work includes replacing the fences, improving drainage, and cementing that fencing deeper into the ground.

Nicholas┬ásays the new fencing is being paid for by a federal grant allotted for the airport in this year’s budget, and it will provide a new sense of safety and security.

He says the old fence was eroding at the foundation, allowing animals and other wildlife to crawl underneath it.
