The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) authorized $354,709 for research into the widening of Runway 8/26, relocation of Taxiway A, and apron improvements, according to the announcement by U.S. Senators Robert Menendez and Cory Booker (D-NJ).

The funding stream runs through the New Jersey Department of Transportation (DOT), which owns the airfield. The asphalt runway's size is 50 feet across and 3,881 feet long.
