Federal Aviation Administration Announces Additional Recovery Act Airport Grants
WASHINGTON — The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration today announced that five additional airport projects have been selected for funding, paid for with $9 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds that became available because of low bids on airport projects nationwide.
“Earlier ARRA projects came in under budget and these savings can now be applied to other projects,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. “Transportation and infrastructure are the foundation of our economy. These airport projects are putting people to work in good-paying jobs across the country.”
FAA Administrator Randy Babbitt made the announcement at an event celebrating the completion of a $4.9 million Recovery Act terminal project at Yeager Airport in Charleston, West Va. Yeager Airport will also receive an additional $2.58 million of the newly available ARRA funds to make additional terminal improvements, including a pedestrian bridge which will help passengers access the airport more safely.
“These additional Recovery Act dollars are giving airports that serve a wide range of communities the chance to make needed improvements that wouldn’t otherwise be possible,” said FAA Administrator Randy Babbitt. “Safe and modernized airports will benefit these local economies for years to come.”
Four other airports will also receive additional Recovery Act grants for construction and rehabilitation projects:
Nationwide, over $1.3 billion in Recovery Act money has been made available for both airport improvement projects and air traffic control facility and system upgrades. These Recovery Act grants have been distributed to airports that serve commercial passengers, cargo and general aviation.
