Canandaigua is getting an upgrade in the hope that it will bring more tourism to the area.

There will be a celebration Wednesday at the Canandaigua airport for the beginning of a major runway expansion project. With the help of a grant from the FAA, the new runway will expand by 2,300 feet.

The goal of the project is to bring tourism and business to Ontario County and increase accessability to the Finger Lakes region.
