MRO project lands $20M more

PENSACOLA, Fla. - The ST Engineering MRO expansion project got another $20 million Wednesday when the Florida Department of Transportation upped its commitment to a total of $45 million. "I am proud to announce City of Pensacola has secured the remaining funding for Project Titan, which will expand the Aviation Maintenance Overhaul Repair (MRO) campus at the Pensacola International Airport," said Mayor Grover Robinson."I am excited for this transformational project to move forward." He received the confirmation letter today. FDOT is amending its work program to removing funding from several other projects to fund the airport project, an eight-week process. FDOT's work program and budget will still need to be reviewed by the Florida Legislature, but if approved, Pensacola will receive the funding in 2021. The $210 million expansion would add three more hangars to the one already in place at Pensacola International Airport. It would add another 1,325 jobs.
