FAA approves grant to install safety barriers at Teterboro Airport

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved a $500,000 grant to begin engineering work for the installation of safety barriers at the end of the runways at Teterboro Airport.

The FAA has approved the grant following a crash last month. On February 2, a corporate jet taking off from the airport skidded off the runway, traveled across Route 46 and slammed into a clothing warehouse. No one was killed in the crash, but 20 people were injured, including people on the ground.

As a result of the accident, the FAA has required that protective measures be taken by 2007. Residents in the area say they are happy the airport will be improving safety. There is no word when the barriers will be installed. Meanwhile, the cause of the crash is still under investigation.
