The Fort Chipewyan Airport is getting a bit of an upgrade.

The federal government announced on Tuesday they’re investing $1.588 to rehabilitate the airfield lighting system.

“Our investments are increasing airport safety and accessibility for residents and travelers, while supporting the continued growth of local and regional economies,” said Minister of Transport Marc Garneau.

The funding comes from Transport Canada’s Airports Capital Assistance Program.
