Penn State Expected to Spend Millions on University Park Airport (KUNV) and Lasch Football Building

The Penn State Board of Trustees finance committee has recommended the full board approve $5.6 million in upgrades to University Park Airport and $2 million in renovations to the Lasch Football Building.

The upgrades include replacing roughly 378 lights along with wiring, cabling and circuitry along the airport's taxiways.

The university says the existing lights have reached the end of their lifespan and the circuitry requires increasing maintenance. The new lights will feature energy efficient LED technology.

The university also intends to replace some asphalt and demolish some hangars and hangar foundations. The project includes installation of a new general aviation apron, three parking lots, storm water management facilities, lighting, an access road, general grading, erosion and sediment controls, and signing and marking elements.
