LOS ANGELES COUNTY -- General William J. Fox Airfield in Lancaster and Whiteman Airport in Pacoima will each receive new perimeter fencing and wireless vehicle gate access systems at a combined project cost of $3.6 million, announced Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich.

“These airfields see hundreds of thousands of operations annually and security at the facilities is critical,” Supervisor Antonovich said. “The new perimeter fencing will meet current FAA standards and the vehicle gate access systems will provide closely scrutinized access to the facilities.”

Ninety percent of the project funding, which includes almost seven miles of fencing around Fox Airfield and two miles around Whiteman Airport, is being provided by a grant from the Federal Aviation Administration.  The upgrade projects are set to begin later this year.
